THE SELLER WILL COVER SHIPPING WITH REGULAR MAIL FOR THIS ITEM!

It is a portrait of the younger sister of King Friedrich II of Prussia - Princess Luisa Ulrike (1720-1782; CLICK HERE and see our images nr. 7, 8 and 9) who in 1744 married the Swedish Crown Prince Adolf Frederick (future King of Sweden). The form of her wig corresponds to the early 1740s. Besides that she is depicted with Prussian Royal Crown what means she is depicted here still unmarried.

It is a typical (one of the earliest) work of the leading 18th century Berlin miniaturist Anton Friedrich Koenig ( for comparison see latter's works in our possession).

The well-known German miniaturist Anton Friedrich Koenig (1722 Berlin - 1787 ibidem) was a pupil of C.L.Blesendorf and A.Pesne and from 1767 worked as royal portrait miniature painter in Berlin, being the most fruitful North German miniaturist of his time. He is supposed to have made several thousands of miniatures alone of Friedrich the Great!

Provenance:
Collection of Hanoverian artist Oskar Wichtendahl (1860-1933; CLICK HERE)
Latter's heirs living in Lower Saxony.
