One of this pair of drawings - the portrait of a man in uniform of Prussian Major-General - was illustrated in Kurt von Priesdoff's "Führertum", vol. 4 (see our image nr.14). The illustration is accompanied by text naming the author of the male portrait (and, respectively, its counterpart, the female portrait) - famous Prussian Court portraitist Franz Krueger. Besides that, both of the portraits bear on verso authentic old legends with sitter's name(s).
We are dealing here with (shotly after 1845; in that year he was awarded Prussian Black Eagle Order) portrait of Prussian Major-General Louis Gustav von Thile (1781-1852; his father and his (more known) younger brother were also Prussian generals - see our images nr.16-17) and portrait of his elder sister Emilie Charlotte Auguste (1777-?), from 1800 wife of Prussian major and in 1801-1806 commandant of Fortress Koenigsberg, Friedrich Wilhelm Ernst von Tiesenhausen.

Franz Krueger (1797 Grossbadegast - 1857 Berlin), called "Horse-Krueger", studied at the Berlin Academy for a short time from 1812 and continued his education as an autodidact. He extensively studied thoroughbred horses at the royal stables. Prince August of Prussia and Count Neidhardt of Gneisenau helped him to acquire high patrons, who let portray themselves on horseback and with retinue. Krueger soon rose to the most noted militarian and portrait painter of Berlin. He painted portraits of the members of the Prussian royal family, of various court persons, of Prussian high society. In 1825 Friedrich Wilhelm III granted him the title of "Royal Professor". At the same time he became a full member of the Academy of Arts. Krueger's fame led him to numerous professional trips. In 1839-1840 he worked at the court of King of Hannover, in 1854 at the court of Grand Duke of Mecklenburg. The artist repeatedly travelled to St.Petersburg to paint on commission of Tsar Nikolai I (in 1836, 1845, 1847, 1850/51). From 1840 on he was the favourite painter of the next Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and his retinue.
