This miniature on ivory with a portrait of a young lady in brown gown, depicted in mountain landscape is an absolutely unique (no other, made in this technique is known!) work of well-known Nazarene artist Franz Nadorp.
Due to the date (1827) and added after his name (see our image nr. 5) "Anholtiensis" (resident of town Anholt, now suburb of of Isselburg in German province Nordrhein-Westfalen) this portrait was executed by artist in his native Anholt where he stayed several months long in 1827.
Franz (Franz Johann Heinrich) Nadorp was born on 23rd June 1794 in Anholt and died on 17th September 1876 in Rome. He was an only son of artist Johann Theodor Nadorp and his wife, Gertrud Anna Stroof.
After his education at the Anholt Coty School, in age of 20 and with scholarship of his ruling Prince Constantin zu Salm-Salm he became pupil at the Prague Academy where he studied historical painting with Professor Joseph Bergler (he became latter's most favorite pupil). Already in 1822 he obtained there an academical Golden Medal.
After his teacher's death (1826) he left Prague and came for several months to Anholt.
In autumn of 1827, accompanying Prince Franz-Joseph zu Salm-Salm (1801-1842) he came to Rome where he soon became member of the group of German Nazarene artists (a. o. Peter Cornelius, Friedrich Overbeck, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld etc.).
In 1829 he became one of founders of "Ponte-Molle-Society". in 1845 - of "Deutscher Kunstverein" (Union of German artists in Rome). In that period he made acquaintance with King Ludwig I of Bavaria (a great art lover), both became friends.
In 1859 Nadorp obtained an important commission from King Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia. He lived permanently (withshort interruptions) in Rome. In 1876 Prince Alfred I zu Salm-Salm granted him life annuity.
Nadorp, which is considered one of the leading German romantic painters, died several weeks thereafter and was buried at Campo Santo Teutonico next to St.Peter, in the Vatican. His entire estate was transferred to the Prince zu Salm-Salm and can still be seen today in the Museum Wasserburg in Anholt and in the parish Church of St.Pancras.
