Friedrich Christian Krieger (also Krüger) was born on May 23rd 1774 in Zeucha by Forst, Niederlausitz (North Saxony) and died on June 13th 1832 in Dresden. At first, he mastered the profession of a tailor in Cottbus and then for a few years lived in Forst working as one. In 1800 he went to Dresden and studied portrait painting there. He debuted as exponent in 1804 showing a female pastel portrait. In his first period he worked mainly in pastel; later - in oil, painting also portraits and historical scenes. As an itinerant portraitist, he travelled through Bohemia, region of Lausitz (Saxony and Poland); in 1814 he was in Breslau (now Wroclaw in Poland), then - in Posen (Polish: Poznan); in 1815-1817 Krieger lived in Warsaw (the sitter in our portrait, dated 1815, was likely a resident of that city - B.W.), where, apart from pastel portraits and miniatures on ivory, he also produced a number of religious paintings. In 1817, he travelled - via Breslau, Dresden and Thuringen - to Berlin, but then returned to Posen. In 1820, he exhibited in Breslau. Finally, in 1822, Krieger settled in Dresden and remained in that city (with interruptions for portrait commissions in Berlin, Prague, Breslau, Warsaw and Posen) until his death. He regularly exhibited at the Berlin academic exhibitions and in Dresden.
