A nicely painted miniature portrait in watercolor on ivory of Queen Louise of Prussia (1776-1810) whose reverence by Germans continued for generations after her meeting with Napoleon in 1807 beseeching him to grant lenient terms to the Prussians after their decisive defeat. The portrait is framed in ivory with brass liner. Condition is excellent. We date this portrait to the 3d quarter of the 19th C. and is of continental origin painted after the original oil on canvas by the famed portraitist Louise Élisabeth Vigée LeBrun who was Madame Pompadour's painter. Dimension: 4" x 3 1/2" (approx.) framed
