Nikolaus Lauer (1753-1824) "Portrait of a young woman", fine pastel, 1810s

Price: 3900  EUR

(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)

As convincingly prove our comparison images nr. 7-10 we are dealing here with an absolutely authentic and very typical work of well-known, turn of 19th century, German pastelist - Nikolaus Lauer.
The depicted young woman in a white gown (wedding dress?) seems to be from family Cetto living in artist's native town St.Wendel (Lauer portrayed almost all members of this family (CLICK HERE)).

Nikolaus Lauer (1753 St. Wendel, Saarland - 1824) completed his initial training in Trier (and not in Mannheim, as Neil Jeffares writes) and then worked in St. Wendel (situated ca 50 km form Trier) until 1786. 1786 he married a daughter of a merchant and moved to Blieskastel where he was taken up by Karl III August Christian Pfalzgraf von Birkenfeld-Zweibrücken. Appointed court artist in 1791 he continued to work in Homburg and Zweibrücken until 1794. Following the German forces retreat from Napoleon, he moved to Leipzig and Dresden (1794-1797) where he copied pastels by Mengs and Liotard, and to Berlin (1797-1806) where he did his best known work, among them the numerous images of Queen Luise and her husband Friedrich Wilhelm III which he even advertised in the newspaper "Berlin" in 1799. Chodowiecki drew Anton Graff's attention to the portrait of Luise: "Das ähnliche Bild ist von Lauer aber in seiner harten und steiffen Manier". He returned to St. Wendel in 1806 and remained there until his death.
