According to the authentic old legend on verso of this work, it is a miniature portrait of the freshly widowed Baroness Wilhelmine Louise (and NOT "Henriette", as the legend implies) von dem Bussche-Ippenburg-Muench, nee von Steinberg.
The Web offers some genealogical information about this woman (see our images nr.6-7) and informs of the following:
Wilhelmine Louise von Steinberg was born in 1752 and died in 1831. In 1774, 22-year-old Wilhelmine married 24 years her senior Philipp Clamor, Freiherr (Baron) von dem Bussche-Ippenburg (1728-1808), who was a descendant of an old and noble East-Westphalian family (branch of Bussche-Ippenburg). One year before their marriage, the latter inherited Castle Benkhaussen from his relative - a high-ranking official Philipp von Muench (Münch) from Brunswyck-Lueneburg. The Castle Benkhaussen is located near town Espelkamp (ca. 75km from Hanover; see our image nr.8). At the same time, through inheritance, Phlipp Clamor acquired the addition "-Münch" to his name, and was from that point in time called "von dem Bussche-Münch". Hence, the accurate title of his wife Wilhelmine Louise was the "Baroness von dem Bussche-Münch" (and not Bussche-Ippenburg!).
Baron Philipp Clamor von dem Bussche-Münch was also a "Domherr" (head of Evangelical community) in Osnabrueck (115km from Hanover) and the chamberlain of the King of Hanover. Besides inheriting Castle Benkhausen, he owned estates Hoya (Lower Saxony) and Anderten in a suburb of Hanover.
In 1791, their only child - son Georg - was born; he later became a Prussian state councilor (see our image nr.10).
After the death of her husband, Wilhelmine Louise lived in the Castle Benkhausen, where she passed away and where she was buried in 1831.
Johann Georg Paul Fischer (1786 Hanover - 1875 London) was son of an engraver and pupil of Heinrich Ramberg, and came to England in 1810. He worked chiefly in London and did numerous portraits of the English aristocracy including those of Queen Victoria and Queen Charlotte. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and Society of British Artists from 1817 to 1852.
