Price: ON REQUEST
(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
Marked in Johann Heinrich Schroeder's catalogue raisonné by Marieluise Spangenberg as "whereabouts unknown" (see our image nr.9), this resurfaced work is an extremely important (executed in ca 1800 according to the sitter's dress and hairstyle) pastel portrait of Queen Luise of Prussia's eldest sister Charlotte Georgine, Princess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz and - from 1784 - Duchess of Saxe-Hildburghausen (1769-1784; CLICK HERE and see our web #40653 and #36228). It was never shown at any public exhibitions and was throughout the years always the sole property of the Royal House of Hanover. It was published and illustrated only once (1932; see below).
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.
