We are dealing here with a miniature portrait of an officer of the Prussian Hussar Regiment No.10 ("von Lediwary") from the early period of the Napoleonic Epoch (for comparison, see our image nr.6).
This high quality miniature is a typical work of early 19th century, leading Silezian (Silezia was then a part of the Kingdom of Prussia) miniaturist Carl Gottlob Schmeidler.
Carl Gottlob Schmeidler was born in Nimptsch, Silesia (today in Poland) in 1772 and died in Breslau (today Wroclaw, Poland) in 1838.
After doing his preliminary art studies in Breslau, he became a pupil at the Academy of Dresden. When he finished his studies he returned to Breslau, where he soon became a much sought after miniaturist. In 1813 when he was staying in this town, King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia had Schmeidler do the portraits of his children. Soon the whole aristocracy of Silesia came to him or invited him to the castles of the region. The artist won more and more the esteem of his fellow-citizens and from 1828 to 1831 he was the president of the municipal council and the following year, deputy.
Schidlof further says: "Schmeidler was one of the best German miniaturists of his period".
Numerous miniatures by Schmeidler were with families of Silesia before the WWI. The museum of Breslau (Wroclaw) had several of them.
