Description

A watercolour portrait of Frederick the Great, head and shoulders in profile to the left, wearing a tricorn hat; set in a fictive grey circular frame with military emblems. This portrait resembles a print by Bergler after Chodowiecki, dated 1777, showing the king in profile to the left, but on horseback. Chodowiecki's engraving of Frederick reviewing his troops in 1778 may also derive from the drawing.

Descriptive Medium: 'Watercolour'
