Executed in ca 1775 (note the fashion of the sitters' dresses), these two portrait miniatures are probably works of Prussian court miniaturist Anton Friedrich Koenig. This pair of very good quality miniatures on ivory shows the Prussian Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm (1744-1797; CLICK HERE) and his second wife Friederike Luise of Hessen-Darmstadt (1751-1805; CLICK HERE). Our image nr.8 shows a painting by Anna Dorothea Therbusch (1777), in which the spouses are depicted with their children.

Well-known German miniaturist Anton Friedrich Koenig (1722 Berlin - 1787 ibidem) was a pupil of C.L.Blesendorf and A.Pesne and from 1767 worked as royal portrait miniature painter in Berlin, being the most fruitful North German miniaturist of his time. He is supposed to have made several thousands of miniatures alone of Friedrich the Great!

For several other miniatures by Anton Friedrich Koenig that were sold at auctions in the last years, see our images nr.9-13.
