This work is an extremely rare miniature portrait of Swabian aristocrat, Carl Albert Joseph, Reichsfreiherr (Baron of the Holy Roman Empire) von Welden. He bears insignia of "Grosskomtur" (Grand Commander) of the Bavarian Royal Order of St. Georg (CLICK HERE and HERE; he was raised to this rank on December 8, 1803 - early 1804; similarly, his old-fashioned hairstyle suggests the same period).
Carl Albert Joseph, Reichsfreiherr von Welden was born at the Castle Grosslaupheim (see our image nr.9) in Laupheim - his family's residence town (it is situated 80 km from Stuttgart - then capital of Duchy Wuerttemberg). He was a son of Constantin Adolf Reichsfreiherr von Welden (1715-1772) and the latter's first wife Maximiliana Franziska, nee Baroness von Starzhausen (1717-1752). In 1767, he married his first wife, Maria Josepha von Speth, Baroness von Zwiefalten. In 1772, he succeeded his late father as owner of Castle Grosslaupheim. In 1806, the ownership of town Laupheim (until then - part of the Holy Roman Empire) was transferred to the Kingdom of Wuerttemberg.
Carl Albert Joseph von Welden died in 1808. His property was inherited by his son (and future prominent Munich attorney) Constantin Ludwig, Freiherr von Welden.
Back in 1724, with permission of Karl Albert Joseph's grandfather, Jews were allowed to settle in Laupheim. In 1808 (death year of "our" sitter), the Jewish community of that town counted as many as 278 families (8,8% of total population); with time, Laupheim became the greatest Jewish settlement in South Germany (CLICK HERE).
This miniature demonstrates stylistic criteria of works by well-known Stuttgart female portrait (and, according to Lemberger, also a miniaturist!), Ludovike Simanowiz (for extensive biography of this artist, see our image nr.10; see also our images nr.11-12 that are stylistically resembling the miniature, which is presented here).
