As convincingly proves the comparison with our web # 40484 we are dealing here with an absolutely authentic and very typical work of the best Silesian miniaturist of the early 19th century - Carl Gottlob Schmeidler.
The depicted young man is dressed and hairstyled according to the fashion of the mid 1800s.
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.
