Xaver Franz Milz was born in Gemuend by Bregenz (Austro-Swiss-German border) in 1765. After studying law at the University of Freiburg in Breisgau (today in German province Baden-Wuerttemberg), he became a court state official in Hofrieden (Austrian province Voralberg), then transferred to Head Office of Bregenz, and, in 1793, became a "Rentamtmann" in Feldkirch. His next job took him to Weisserau (on the German side of the border), and, in 1809, we find him serving as an Oberamtmann (higher official rank) in Schwaebisch Gmuend, Germany, where he remained for eight years. In 1817, he became a state councilor in Ellwangen.Milz's past time was eagerly occupied by portrait miniature painting. In any case, Milz's works do indeed show a strong influence of Einsle Einsle also painted few miniatures with portraits of Milz's family members! Milz, as Lemberger says further, painted hundreds of miniatures that he gave around as presents.
