Depicted here as (still) Duke of Wuerttemberg, the sitter in this late-18th-century miniature on ivory is none other than Friedrich Wilhelm Karl (1754-1816), future (from 1805) King Friedrich I of Wuerttemberg (CLICK HERE and see our comparison images nr.6-7). He was also the brother-in-law of Tsar Paul I of Russia.
This miniature is probably (see our comparison image nr.8) work od Wuerttembergian court miniaturist Johann Gottlieb Schweppe.

Johann Gottlieb Schweppe (1763 Stuttgart - 1809 ibidem) studied the art of engraving from 1782 to 1784 at the Stuttgart Karlsschule. From 1790 to 1793 he mostly travelled and from 1793 (after his marriage) he permanently lived in Stuttgart. He was chiefly active as a portrait miniaturist, had rich clientele among the Wuerttembergian high society. He was an official court artist and made a number of miniature portraits of the Royal Family.
Works of his are extremely rare on the current antique market.

Provenance: English antique trade

*We are very grateful to our friend, world's best specialist in portrait miniature, Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland) for helping to identify the sitter.
