Offered here is a high quality miniature portrait of a young aristocratic lady wearing a blue turban. Our comparison images nr.6-8 convincingly prove that it is an absolutely typical and authentic work of well-known German miniaturist Peter Eduard Stroely, who was active at the turn of the 19th century.
Alike our web #41638, this work could have been executed
- sometime between 1792 and 1794 in Naples,
- or, sometime between 1794 and 1796 (during the artist's subsequent stay in Vienna)
- or, finally, at the begin of artist's stay in Saint Petersburg (it is known that he arrived there sometime in the beginning of February-March 1797).
According to recent publications of Russian art historian, Dr. Lyubov Pulikova, Peter Eduard Stroely (Straely, Stroehling, Stroelling) was born in autumn of 1766 in Dusseldorf into the family of Johann Burhard Stroely and Marie Gertrude Bliessem (a note of the baptism of the newborn Peter Eduard Burhard Stroely (Stroehling) was made on 28 October 1766).
The artist's father was a member of the "Malerzunft" (artist guild) and was active as an artist making monumental decorations. Peter Eduard, probably, began his art education in the native Dusseldorf (in the local drawing school, which became an Academy of Fine Arts in 1777) or he even visited Italy or England for study.
In any case, in the 1780s he already worked in Germany as itinerant miniaturist; we meet him in Mannheim and Mainz in 1789, in Frankfurt in 1791/92, and in Berlin 1792. In late 1792 he came to Naples to work at the court (some historians believe he worked also in Rome at that time). In late 1793 (or first half of 1794) the artist came to Vienna where he mainly worked for the Royal House and high aristocracy.
Approximately in late February - beginning of March 1797 Stroely came to St. Petersburg where he stayed until March 1802. And again, among his clients were only members of the Russian Royal Family and high aristocrats.
From Russia he came to Berlin, where for a few months he worked for the Prussian royalties, and in 1803 finally settled in England, where he stayed until his death after 1828.
Works of his are to see in most important museums in Germany, Russia, Great Britain etc.
