Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Philippine Margarethe Wilhelmine von Schleinitz", pastel, 1780s 5900 EUR
Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Philippine Margarethe Wilhelmine von Schleinitz", pastel, 1780s
This superior quality pastel portrait of Philippine Margarethe Wilhelmine Freifrau (Baroness) von Schleinitz, nee von Westernhagen (see the authentic legend on verso) was offered at November 14, 2017 auction sale of Salzburg auction house "Dorotheum". In fact, it was offered in the same lot as its counter piece - a pastel portrait of the sitter's daughter, Johanna Henriette Luise Freifrau Schleinitz (1753-1831; see our web #42081). During review of the auction catalogue (and while in possession of a great number of OTHER WORKS OF THE SAME ARTIST), we immediately identified this portrait as a fully authentic and very typical creation of Germany's best, late-18th-century pastelist, Johann Heinrich Schroeder. Interestingly enough, at the same time, this pair of portraits was discovered on the Web by Mr. Neil Jeffares (CLICK HERE), who, in his turn, promptly included them into the section on Johann Heinrich Schroeder of the online edition of his "Dictionary of pastelists before 1800" (see our image nr.12).
The best German pastelist of the late 18th century Johann Heinrich Schroeder (Schröder) was born in 1757 in Meiningen, Thuringia (which was then residence town of Duchy Saxe-Meiningen). His early work shows the influence of Johann Philipp Bach who may also have taught him. However, by 1778 he had become a pupil of J.H.Tischbein in Kassel where he exhibited two works at "Junge Maler" in the Academy show in 1780: one pastel portrait, the other a Cleopatra after Titian (medium unspecified). He travelled to Hanover (ca. 1780-84), Brunswick (court artist 1785), Frankfurt, Mannheim, Dresden (1786), Kassel (1787, returning in 1804), Berlin (1789-1792 and 1793-1806). His first trip to Berlin was mentioned in a letter from January 1789 of Charlotte, Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel to her sister-in-law, Elisabeth Christine, Queen of Prussia.
