Our permanent advisor, well-known military historian and author of the numerous publications on Prussian military uniforms, Mr. Stanislav Lyulin, informed us that the sitter in the "husband's" portrait (we are dealing here with a pair of portraits of a married couple) was a senior officer (major? lieutenant colonel? colonel?) of the Prussian army. Moreover, Mr. Lyulin says the sitter's uniform (it corresponds to regulation of 1808-1812) is that of an officer ascribed to infantry, yet, in reality, serving in King's retinue.

Without any doubt, these two portraits (CLICK HERE TO COMPARE WITH OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION) are later works of Germany's best pastelist of the turn of 19th century, Johann Heinrich Schroeder.

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.
From 1792-1793 Schroeder was in London, following the marriage of the Prussian Princess Friederike with the Duke of York; there he portrayed the Royal Family and exhibited three portraits of unnamed sitters at the Royal Academy. Returning to Germany via The Netherlands, he made a portrait of Queen Luise of Prussia which was widely copied. He was in Brunswick in 1801 before settling in his home town Meiningen after 1806. There were further trips to Bad Pyrmont (1806) and Karlsruhe (1810-1811). He also executed a series of portraits of the Baden Royal Family in the 1800s.
He died in his native town Meiningen in 1812.
