Joh. Christian August Schwartz "Princess Amalie von Baden", important pastel portrait!!, 1800/05
Price: ON REQUEST
(please note additional 10% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
Rare pastel portrait of Princess Amaliie (Amalie Christine Louise) von Baden (1776-1823), never married daughter of Hereditary Prince Karl Ludwig of Baden and the Hereditary Princess Amalie von Hessen-Darmstadt (for latter's portrait acquired from the same noble state see our web # 36234). She was the twin sister of Karoline von Baden, future Queen of Bavaria and elder sister of Louise von Baden, future Tsarina Elizaveta Alexeevna of Russia (consort of Tsar Alexander I). Her only brother Prince Karl von Baden became second Grand Duke of Baden later. For she was unmarried her places of residence changed between her sisters Karoline (in Munich) and Elizaveta Alexeevna ( in St. Petersburg; 1801-1809 and 1811-1814) or the residence of her brother in Karlsruhe.
Johann Christian August Schwartz (1756 Hildesheim - 1814 Brunswyck) worked in Brunswyck (Braunschweig), Dresden, Hamburg, and exhibited at the Berlin Academy in 1800. He was evidently close to Johann Heinrich Schroeder (1757-1812): the attribution of works between them is complicated by the number of pastels signed by Schwartz which are in fact versions of works by Schroeder; many confusions still persist.
