This work was executed in the first half of the 1750s either by one of the pupils of Berlin court portraitist Antoine Pesne, or even by the artist himself (see our comparison image nr.8 and nr.11-15). It is a miniature portrait of an outstanding quality, depicting the younger sister of King Friedrich II ("The Great") - Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia (1723-1787; for her extensive biography, see our image nr.9).
The princess is posing in evening landscape, in front of her residence palace as a huntress taking a rest. She is shown holding a riffle, with a dog bracing against her knees and a hunting horn beside her; at a far distance, one also sees a running deer chased by a dog.
