Description

Johann, Michael Kaufmann, around 1760

Oil on canvas, designated on the rear side, signed and dated.

In a high quality, original Rococo frame with elaborately broken, carved and engraved edge-ornaments.

J. M. Kaufmann (born 1713 – deceased after 1786) became courtly painter of Prince Clemens of Bavaria in Munich in 1745 and was known for his portraits and miniatures.

This picture of Countess Perusa as Flora in a dress with fine lace trimming is of exceedingly high quality, in her hands she is holding a small flower basket and blossoms.

Being represented as goddess of blossoms, spring and youth or being costumed as Flora for courtly festivities followed fashion trends within the courtly culture. 

From old Bavarian Noble collection.
