Offered here is a very good quality miniature portrait painted by (presumably) Swiss enamelist. The portrait shows Carl Alexander, Duke of Lorraine, who - as it is known - was from 1761 and until his death (1780) - the Grand Master of Teutonic Order.
Carl Alexander Duke of Lorraine (in German: Lothringen) was born on the 12th of December 1712 in LunÚville, and died on the 4th of July 1780 in Tervuren. From 1761 he was a Grand Master of Teutonic Order (in German: Deutscher Orden). Already as a four-year-old, in 1716, he was ascribed into the Austrian Army, and, in 1740, obtained a rank of Austrian Field-Marshal.
We consider the approximate date of this miniature's making to be sometime between 1761 (the sitter becomes a Grand Master of Teutonic Order) and 1765.
Our images nr.6-10 show several other portraits of him as the Grand Master of Teutonic Order.
