Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Katherine Mendheim", fine pastel portrait, 1795/98 3900 EUR
Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Katherine Mendheim", fine pastel portrait, 1795/98
According to the old authentic legend on verso of this work, we are dealing with a pastel portrait of Käthe (Katherine) Mendheim. This young lady was a member of one of Berlin Jewish families of that time (Käthe is dressed and hairstyled accordinng to fashion of 1795/98). Her younger brother - chess player and composer Julius Mendheim, had acquired more recognition among his contemporaries (see our image nr.8).
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.
