Johann Heinrich Schroeder (1757-1812) "Portrait of an aristocrat", high quality pastel!, ca. 1790
Acquired in November 2017 through German antique trade offered as a work of an English 18th-century master - ?!), this, superior quality portrait of a (still anonymous) aristocrat (royalty?) is in reality an absolutely authentic and very typical work of Germany's best late-18th-century pastelist, Johann Heinrich Schroeder (for comparison, see our images nr.6-9).
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.
