antique painting empire 1813 1 antique painting empire 1813

Extraordinary portraits of two Nuremberg women’s. One portrait is dated (1813) and signed from L.H. Hessel. Leonhard Heinrich Hessel (1757 St. Petersburg (?) – ca. 1830) was a German-Estonian painter and engraver. Since 1779 he works in Nuremberg. He portraitist rich citizen from Nuremberg (for example Paul Wolfgang Merkel, Johann Paul Sattler, Carl Felssecker). Portraits from Hessel are in the Museum Albertina (Vienna), in the Germanisches Nationalmuseum (Germanic National Museum, Nuremberg) and in the Swedish National Museum (Stockholm).
We don’t know who this women are. But they must be rich citizen from Nuremberg, two sisters. Pastel painting on paper, in original frame. Of the backside from one of the portraits you find old liturgical texts. The paper was so expensive in this time that it was recycled and used a second time. The frames shows signs of age and some wormholes. The portraits are in very good condition. One water stain in the area from one chin. A unique mixed lot.
