Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Luise, Queen of Prussia", important pastel from royal property!, ca 1800
Price: ON REQUEST
(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
Housed in the collection of the Royal House of Hanover (its last owner - Prince of Hanover, London) for over two centuries, it is an extremely important pastel portrait of Luise, Queen of Prussia (1776-1810). It resurfaced at April 10, 2019 sale of Christie's London, and was mistakenly (!!) listed as portrait of Luise's sister, Princess Friederike of Prussia (for her factual portrait painted by the same artist, see our web #26015). This erroneous title allowed us to acquire this exceedingly qualitative portrait (accompanied by another work - see our image nr.15) without the (otherwise tough) auction battle.
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.
