As convincigly proves compasrison with our web # 36562 we are dealing here with a very important miniature portrait of the 17-19-year-old daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, Princess Marie Therese Charlotte de France, Madame Royale (1778-1851; see our images nr.5-13 with extemsive biographical information). The young princess was surely portrayed between January of 1796 and May 1799, during her 3,5-year-long stay in Vienna. She came to this city on January 9th 1796, twenty-two days after leaving the Temple (her prison in Paris, where she spent 3 years: at first, with her whole family and, toward the end, alone, the only surviving member of this family; on December 18th 1795 she was liberated - she was exchanged for Nicolas Marie Quinette, Baron de Rochemont captured by the Austrians). It is a miniature on ivory of high quality, which demonstrates stylistic criteria of the works by famous Viennese Neoclassical painter Heinrich Friedrich Fueger and his pupils.

Heinrich Friedrich Fueger (1751 Heilbronn - 1818 Vienna) was a German-Austrian neoclassical artist born in Heilbronn, Germany in 1751. He began autodidactically with miniature portraits and as a young boy was shortly trained by the artist Guibal in Ludwigsburg. However he returned to Heilbronn to study law in 1768 and during his university studies continued painting portrait miniatures. His interest in painting grew and he dedicated himself to studying art as pupil of Oeser in Leipzig. He exhibited succesfully at the Dresdner Academy and moved to Dresden, where he worked until the year 1774 then moving to Vienna. He soon enjoyed the interest of the Imperial House and other influential sponsors in Vienna and traveled to Rome on a scolarship in 1776 studying the classical works, Raffael, Annibal Caracci and Domenichino. Among his contemporaries the artists Mengs, Trippel and David had a strong influence on his works. He returned to Vienna in 1783 to be appointed the Vice-director of the Vienna Academy in the same year and Director of the Academy in 1795. From 1806 he was also Director of the Imperial Picture Gallery. He was a very popular portrait and historical painter, a respected master of his time.
