Our permanent advisor, author of numerous publications on Prussian military uniforms, Dr. Stanislav Lyulin, informed us that the young man depicted on this portrait wears a uniform of a volunteer from the "Lützow Free Corps" - a volunteer force of the Prussian Army during Liberation (ant-Napoleonic) War of 1813 (CLICK HERE). Moreover, the sitter was a cavalryman in this corps - either uhlan or mounted chasseur. Clearly dated - "Im Maÿ 1813" - this miniature (executed by one of sitter's brother-soldier?) was apparently ordered by the young man during several days rest between fights somewhere in Saxony, probably even behind enemy lines (Lützow's corps was a "partisan" unit). It is highly possible that the depicted man did not live long thereafter - on June 17th of 1813 the Lützow Free Corps was surrounded by enemies and a great part of its cavalry was massacred. We are sure this miniature was ordered by the young man as a farewell portrait which was to be sent to his family...
