Painted with gouache on vellum, these two allegorical scenes (two fragments of a "Four Seasons" cycle) are typical (for comparison, see our images nr.16-23) works of studio of well-known Swiss-German 17th-century painter, Joseph Werner the Younger.

Joseph Werner (1637 Bern - 1710 Berlin), known as "the Younger" (in order to distinguish him from his painter father of the same name) was especially known as artist of miniatures. He began his studies with his father, then continued them in Frankfurt am Main, later went to Rome to paint and traveled to France, where, at the court of Louis XIV he painted portraits of the monarch himself, as well as the various notables in his entourage; he also worked on the decorations of the Palace of Versailles. In 1667, he left France but continued to move in exalted circles. In Augsburg he worked for the Bavarian Elector, in Vienna painted portrait of the Holy Roman Emperor Leopold I, was then invited to Berlin by the Prussian King Friedrich I (by then he had already earned the reputation of a miniature painter at the Court of Saxonian King in Dresden). In Berlin, he was appointed the Director of the newly established Prussian Academy of Fine Art.
