Comparison with other works by this artist (CLICK HERE, HERE and, for other works of this artist in our possession, HERE) convincingly confirms that we are dealing here with a typical and absolutely authentic work of Germany's leading, late-18th-century pastelist (and painter in oils!), Johann Heinrich Schoeder. Moreover, our images nr.9-13 show that this work is (unknown until today) a portrait of Frederike Luise Wilhelmine, Princess of Prussia (1774-1837; CLICK HERE), who in 1791 married her cousin, Wilhelm Friedrich of Orange-Nassau.
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.
