Fr. Joh. G. Lieder (1780-1859) "Princess Jeannette Ivanovna Lopukhina", Watercolored Lithograph, 1820s
1900 EUR - 25% DISCOUNT = 1425,00 EUR
Acquired in 2005 as a portrait of an unknown German or Austrian aristocratic lady, this very rare lithograph of Friedrich Johann Gottlieb Lieder (watercolored by the artist himself!) was later identified as made after a watercolor painted in Rome in 1821 by another well known Viennese portrait artist, Johann Nepomuk Ender (1793-1854). Ender's watercolor was exhibited in 1924 in the "Internationale Miniaturenaustellung in der Albertina in Wien" (Catalogue No. 307; illustrated) and being called in the exhibition catalogue "Portrait of Princess Lopichin" (see our image nr.8 with a clips from this catalogue).
Friedrich Johann Gottlieb Lieder (1780 Potsdam - 1859 Budapest), called Franz Lieder, was a very well-known Austro-German portraitist, portrait miniature painter and lithograph artist of the first half of the 19th century, father of another well-known portraitist Friedrich Lieder the Younger (1807-1884). He was born in Potsdam in 1780 and already at the age of 17 in 1797 debuted in the Academical Exhibition of Berlin. In 1802 he exhibited a portrait of Napoleon in Potsdam and moved to Paris in 1804 to become pupil of David at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. He was then active in Budapest as a popular portraitist of the Hungarian aristocracy and further painted portraits in Pressburg (Bratislava) and Tyrnau. From 1810 he lived in Vienna where he was strongly influenced by works of the famous French miniaturist Johann Baptiste Isabey. The Vienna Congress (1815-1816) brought him special popularity as portraitist. From 1820 the artist was active alternately in Vienna and Budapest. In 1824 he became member of the Vienna Academy. Lieder died in 1859 in Budapest. He can be seen as one of the best Austrian portrait painters. Many of his works belong to collections of major international museums such as the Metropolitan Art Museum, New York, etc.
