Very interesting and of highest quality miniature portrait of a 20-years-old Jewish woman from Bavaria, named Rebekka Seligmann. Born in 1788 in Leimen as a daughter of a wealthy Jewish banker (court banker of King Maximilian I Joseph) Aaron Elias Seligmann (enobled in 1814 to Baron von Eichthal), she married her cousin, Jewish banker, Eduard Seligmann (1783/84 - after 1836) in ca. 1810 in Munich (thus shortly after this portrait was made). The couple settled in Bamberg in 1812 (together with already two born children). On 12 December 1814 the Seligmanns transferred from Jewish to Christian religion (the ceremony took place in the Kunegundis-Chapel near the Church of St. George in Bamberg. All (already four) children were christened at home on the same day. Thus Rebekka obtained a Christian name - Karolina Rebekka and her husband respectively - Anton Eduard).
On 17 December 1816 Rebekka's husband (and his full family) was enobled by the King of Bavaria to "Edler von Weling", in the course of which Rebekka changed her name to Charlotte - Charlotte Edle von Weling.
In 1820 Baron von Weling bought the estate Cherbonhof in Gaustadt near Bamberg for 13.000 Rhein Gulden (see our images nr. 10-13) and in 1828 he acquired the estate Bughof in Bamberg.
After Rebekka's (Charlotte) death in 1836, her husband moved to Solothurn, Switzerland.

This miniature is one of the best works of a well-know Bamberg (later Munich) female artist, Bavarian court miniaturist - Franziska Schoepfer.

Franziska Schoepfer (1763 Mannheim -1836 Munich) was a pupil of the Academy of Mannheim, where she rapidly became a much sought after miniaturist. About 1790 she worked for a time in Bamberg, then she stablished herself in Munich, where she was appointed painter to the court, and did the portraits of the Royal family as well as of numerous members of the aristocracy.
Works of her can be found in collections of Bavarian National Museum Munich and in various German high noble collections.

Our image nr. 14 shows a similar miniature by the artist hand which was sold at Christie's London in 2003.
