Johann Heinrich Schroeder "Portrait of a lady in white gown", pastel, ca. 1810
We are dealing here with one of the latest works of Germany's best pastelist of the turn of the 19th century, Johann Heinrich Schroeder (CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION). The depicted lady is dressed and coiffed according to fashion of ca. 1810.
The best German pastelist of the late 18th century Johann Heinrich Schroeder (Schröder) was born in 1757 in Meiningen, Thuringia (which was then residence town of Duchy Saxe-Meiningen). His early work shows the influence of Johann Philipp Bach who may also have taught him. However, by 1778 he had become a pupil of J.H.Tischbein in Kassel where he exhibited two works at "Junge Maler" in the Academy show in 1780: one pastel portrait, the other a Cleopatra after Titian (medium unspecified). He travelled to Hanover (ca. 1780-84), Brunswick (court artist 1785), Frankfurt, Mannheim, Dresden (1786), Kassel (1787, returning in 1804), Berlin (1789-1792 and 1793-1806). His first trip to Berlin was mentioned in a letter from January 1789 of Charlotte, Duchess of Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel to her sister-in-law, Elisabeth Christine, Queen of Prussia.
