This miniature portrait of 28-year-old Philippine Charlotte, Duchess consort of Brunswick-Wolfenbuettel, nee Princess of Prussia (one of sisters of the King Friedrich II of Prussia - see our image nr.9 with her biography) is an altered copy after large-scala oil portait (1744) by Prussian court portraitist Antoine Pesne (see our image nr.8). In 1918 this miniature was shown at the exhibition "Bildnisminiaturen aus Niedersächsischem Privatbesitz" in Hanover (see our image nr.7 with clips from exhibition catalogue).
It seems to be 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!
