Nikolaus Lauer (1753-1824) "Queen Luise of Prussia", important pastel!!, ca. 1800
Offered here is a very important pastel portrait of ca. 25-year-old Luise, Queen of Prussia, nee Princess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (CLICK HERE). It is a typical work of well-known German pastelist Nikolaus Lauer (see our comparison images nr.6-9).
Nikolaus Lauer (1753 St. Wendel, Saarland - 1824) made his initial training in Trier (not in Mannheim as Neil Jeffares says) and then worked in St. Wendel (situated ca 50 km form Trier) until 1786. 1786 he married a daughter of a merchant and moved to Blieskastel where he was taken up by Karl III August Christian Pfalzgraf von Birkenfeld-Zweibrücken. Appointed court artist in 1791 he continued to work in Homburg and Zweibrücken until 1794. Following the German forces retreat from Napoleon, he moved to Leipzig and Dresden (1794-1797) where he copied pastels by Mengs and Liotard, and to Berlin (1797-1806) where he did his best known work, among them the numerous images of Queen Luise and her husband Friedrich Wilhelm III which he even advertised in the newspaper "Berlin" in 1799. Chodowiecki drew Anton Graff's attention to the portrait of Luise: "Das ähnliche Bild ist von Lauer aber in seiner harten und steiffen Manier". He returned to St. Wendel in 1806 and remained there until his death.
