Johann Friedrich Tielker (1763 Brunswyck (Braunschweig) - 1832 ibidem) originally made silhouettes but gradually became a miniaturist. He worked in Celle (1784), Münster, Osnabrück, Hanover, Aachen (1768/88), Bremen, Hamburg, Lübeck, etc. In late 1789 he returned to Brunswyck but, already in 1790, went back to Frankfurt via Magdeburg, Leipzig and Gotha. Tielker stayed in Frankfurt until 1792 (in that year he was also present at the coronation of Holy Roman Emperor Franz II that took place in this city; there he made acquaintances with many important individuals who were to become his future clients). In late 1792 he was already a court artist in Darmstadt. There he portrayed (among others) Princess Luise of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, who later became Queen of Prussia, and her sister, Princess Friederike. In 1793 he was in Mainz during its occupation by the French. In the same year, by invitation of (then already) Queen Luise Tielker came to work at Berlin Court, where he remained for several years.
