Joh. H. Schroeder-Attrib. "Karl von Baden and Stephanie de Beauharnais", two important portraits, 1811 6500 EUR
Joh. H. Schroeder-Attrib. "Karl von Baden and Stephanie de Beauharnais", two important portraits, 1811
Important and (in the case of the female portrait, extremely rare!) pair of portraits of the ruling Grand Duke Karl Ludwig Friedrich von Baden (1786-1818; CLICK HERE) and his wife, Grand Duchess Stephanie von Baden, nee de Beauharnais (1789-1860; stepdaughter of Napoleon; CLICK HERE). Their wedding took place in 1806, five years before these portraits were made (we assume that they were commissioned shortly after Karl succeeded his father in 1811). As Karl had developed more interest for young men in uniforms than his wife, the marriage was not particularly happy, furthermore because Karl's mother despised her "parvenue" daughter-in-law profoundly.
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.
