The sitter strongly resembles living from 1785 in Munich (where he became aide-de-camp to the Prince-Elector Karl Theodor) Anglo-American physicist and inventor and before all famous Bavarian statesman - Sir Benjamin Thompson, Reisgraf (Count of Holy Roman Empire) von Rumford (for comparison, see our web # 35328).
Carl Heinrich (Heinrich Karl) Brandt (or Brand) was born in 1724 in Vienna and died in 1787 (committing a suicide) in Munich. He was a son of the Vienna painter Christian Hilfgott Brand, the brother of artist Friedrich August Brand and half-brother of artist Johann Christian Brand. He studied in 1739-1745 under Jacob von Schuppen at the Vienna Academy; in 1745-47 - was a pupil of Viennese court portraitist Martin van Meytens the Younger. En route to Paris he made a stopover in Frankfurt, where he portrayed Count Johann Carl Philipp von Cobenzl, who recommended him to Kurfuerst of Mainz, Johann Friedrich Carl von Ostein. The latter then appointed Brandt in 1749 a court miniaturist. From 1750 to 1752 the artist worked in Paris. Afterwards, having returned to Mainz, he founded his own Private Academy.
