Wonderful miniature with a portrait of a highly noble young man in the uniform of the Austrian uhlan officer. Our image nr.8 shows another author's replica (watercolor on paper) which provides a name of the sitter: Count Karl Ludwig von Gruenne (Grünne). This gentleman was born in Vienna, August 25, 1808 and died in Baden by Vienna on June 15, 1884. In 1828, he entered as a second lieutenant to the Austrian 3rd Uhlan Regiment (our portrait shows him in the uniform of this regiment!). After fifteen years of service in various cavalry regiments, on December 23, 1843, he was raised in rank of colonel of 2nd Hussar Regiment and simultaneously appointed provost of the court of Archduke Stephan of Austria. In August 1848 he became principal court tutor of young emperor Franz Joseph I. From 1850 to 1859 he was chairman of the Military Central Chancellery. Fauvorite of Franz Joseph I's mother, Archduchess Sophie, he strongly influenced the emperor. Our image nr.9 brings his extensive biography; image nr.10 shows three portraits of him in a mature age.
Johann Nepomuk Ender (1793 Vienna - 1854 ibidem), twin-brother of another well-known Austrian artist, Thomas Ender, was a very popular portrait painter and miniaturist. From 1806 he studied at the Vienna Academy under Maurer, Lampi, Fueger and Caucig and repeatedly received Academy awards. First portraits by him are known from 1814. In 1815-1817 he was already a well-known Viennese portraitist. In 1818-1819 Ender accompanied Hungarian Count Istvan Szechenyi on his trip through Italy, Greece and the Middle East. In 1820 he obtained an academical scholarship for Italy. In 1820-21 he stayed in Florence; from autumn 1821 lived (together with his brother Thomas) in Rome. While he studied there, he also copied works of Raphael, and painted not only portraits, but also historical and religious compositions. In 1825 he became a member of Rome Accademia di S. Luca.
In 1826-27 marked his return to Vienna (via Florence, Genua, Milan, Geneva, Paris and Munich). In 1829-1850 he was a professor of historical painting at the Vienna Academy and, at the same time, the favorite portraitist of the Court and members of the Austrian and Hungarian high society. His specialties were portraits of elegant women from the Royal Family and aristocracy, alone or with their children, fashionably dressed, and occasionally in extravagant richly decorated hats. These portraits were often reproduced in lithographs or engravings by Ender's well-known town-fellows (Josef Kriehuber, Franz Eybl, etc.).
