This small watercolor (clearly a work of an amateur artist) bears a text written in old German script: "Gott sei Dank, daß es wieder vorbei ist" (English: "Thank goodness it is over again").
Apart from that, an old inscription on verso (written on back cover at a much later date) informs one that this original drawing stemms from family von Forster and is made ca 1800. Surely this date is estimated erronesouly: this young officer (he must have just returned home from the seat of war) is already a bearer of Prussian "Kriegsgedenkmünze" (memorial medal for participation in Liberation (anti-Napoleonic) War of 1813/15 (see our image nr.6).
Additionally, another watercolor miniature painted by the same artist (it was offered at the same auction sale and purchased by another buyer) shows the same young officer several minutes before (see our image nr.7). It bears the following title: "Willkommen in Hirschberg!" ("Welcome to Hirschberg!").
Hirschberg (now Jelenia Gora in Polish province Lower Silesia) was from 1815 part of (then Prussian - sic!) province Silesia.
We are thus dealing with an episode from the life of family von Forster living in this town.
