Set into the lid of a rectangular gilt metal box (bronze and brass) this miniature on ivory executed in the 1760s is a portrait of Prince Franz-Xaver of Saxony and Poland (1730-1806; see our image nr.11 with his biography), the second surviving son of August III, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony. Since 1763 he was co-regent (together with his sister-in-law) of Electorate Saxony.
He is depicted here as a warlord, standing before his commander's tent.
This miniature was executed by one of Dresden's court miniaturists based on the large-scale portrait of the Prince by French artist François Guérin (1740-1795; see our image nr.10).
