It is a very important miniature portrait of Archduchess Elisabeth Wilhelmine of Austria, nee Princess of Wuerttemberg (1767-1790; CLICK HERE; first wife of future Kaiser Franz II, younger sister of Russian Empress Maria Fedorovna). Our image nr.6 shows another miniature portrait of her from the same period.

This portrait was executed in the mid-1780s by one of Viennese miniaturists working in manner (pupil?) of famous Austrian Neoclassical artist (also miniaturist!) Heinrich Friedrich Fueger.

Heinrich Friedrich Fueger (1751 Heilbronn - 1818 Vienna) was a German-Austrian neoclassical artist born in Heilbronn, Germany in 1751. He began autodidactically with miniature portraits and as a young boy was shortly trained by the artist Guibal in Ludwigsburg. However he returned to Heilbronn to study law in 1768 and during his university studies continued painting portrait miniatures. His interest in painting grew and he dedicated himself to studying art as pupil of Oeser in Leipzig. He exhibited succesfully at the Dresdner Academy and moved to Dresden, where he worked until the year 1774 then moving to Vienna. He soon enjoyed the interest of the Imperial House and other influential sponsors in Vienna and traveled to Rome on a scolarship in 1776 studying the classical works, Raffael, Annibal Caracci and Domenichino. Among his contemporaries the artists Mengs, Trippel and David had a strong influence on his works. He returned to Vienna in 1783 to be appointed the Vice-director of the Vienna Academy in the same year and Director of the Academy in 1795. From 1806 he was also Director of the Imperial Picture Gallery. He was a very popular portrait and historical painter, a respected master of his time.
