Portrait of Carl Alexander, Duke of Lorraine (Lothringen) as a Grand Master of Teutonic Order (he was in this function from 1761 until his death in 1780). Painted in 1770/75 by Vienna artist in manner of court miniaturist Johann Christoph Reinsperger (for comparison see our images nr.9-16).
Carl Alexander Duke of Lorraine (in German: Lothringen) was born on the 12th of December 1712 in LunÚville, and died on the 4th of July 1780 in Tervuren. From 1761 he was a Grand Master of Teutonic Order (in German: Deutscher Orden). Already as a four-year-old, in 1716, he was ascribed into the Austrian Army, and, in 1740, obtained a rank of Austrian Field-Marshal.
We consider the approximate date of this miniature's making to be sometime between 1761 (the sitter becomes a Grand Master of Teutonic Order) and 1765.
Our images nr.12-15 show several other portraits of him as a Grand Master of Teutonic Order.
Johann Christoph von Reinsperger (1711 Nuremberg - 1777 Vienna) was a pupil of Liotard and Ebersberger; worked as miniaturist and engraver. He was appointed painter and engraver in Brussels to Duke Charles of Lorraine. Later on he settled in Vienna where he became a member of the Academy.
