Found in January 2019 through antique trade in Vienna (it was offered as "Portrait of a girl with roses in her hair"), it is yet another work of Austria's leading court portraitist of the 1st half of the 19th century, Johann Nepomuk Ender IN OUR POSSESSION.
Moreover, the portrayed "anonymous girl" is none other than then ca 25 year old Archduchess Sophie of Austria, nee Princess of Bavaria, from 1824 - wife of Archduke Franz Karl and later, mother of future Austrian Kaiser (Emperor) Franz Joseph I (for comparison, see our images nr.6-8). It is Ender's preparatory study for one of his portraits of this royalty (for his other portrait of her in our possession, see our web #35466).
Our images nr.9-12 offer extensive biography of Archduchess Sophie.
Johann Nepomuk Ender (1793 Vienna - 1854 ibidem), twin-brother of another well-known Austrian artist, Thomas Ender, was a very popular portrait painter and miniaturist. From 1806 he studied at the Vienna Academy under Maurer, Lampi, Fueger and Caucig and repeatedly received Academy awards. First portraits by him are known from 1814. In 1815-1817 he was already a well-known Viennese portraitist. In 1818-1819 Ender accompanied Hungarian Count Istvan Szechenyi on his trip through Italy, Greece and the Middle East. In 1820 he obtained an academical scholarship for Italy. In 1820-21 he stayed in Florence; from autumn 1821 lived (together with his brother Thomas) in Rome. While he studied there, he also copied works of Raphael, and painted not only portraits, but also historical and religious compositions. In 1825 he became a member of Rome Accademia di S. Luca.
In 1826-27 marked his return to Vienna (via Florence, Genua, Milan, Geneva, Paris and Munich). In 1829-1850 he was a professor of historical painting at the Vienna Academy and, at the same time, the favorite portraitist of the Court and members of the Austrian and Hungarian high society. His specialties were portraits of elegant women from the Royal Family and aristocracy, alone or with their children, fashionably dressed, and occasionally in extravagant richly decorated hats. These portraits were often reproduced in lithographs or engravings by Ender's well-known town-fellows (Josef Kriehuber, Franz Eybl, etc.).
