Georg David Matthieu (1737-1778) - German engraver and portrait painter of the Rococo

Signed and dated „G. D. Matthieu Del. 1767" (center right)

Overall dimensions, framed: 53 x 43.5 cm

This intimate portrait of his brother-in-law is a fine example for the finesse of the German Rococo artist Georg David Matthieu, who is mainly known for his official portraits of the ducal family of Mecklenburg-Schwerin - an oil portrait of Princess Ulrike Sophie achieved at Christie's more than 140,000 euros
The present drawing by the German engraver and portrait painter Georg David Matthieu depicts the Commission Secretary Lüders from Rostock. Matthieu was the brother-in-law of Lüders and worked mainly as a court painter in Mecklenburg. The drawing is skillfully executed and shows a great deal of details. Lüders holds a Dutch pipe, hair and clothes are typical of the period. In the background is depicted a secretary with books and papers and on the table is a letter with the words 'Ma chère soeur' (=My dear sister), next to the letter appears a burning candle.
The drawing is signed and dated 'G. D. Matthieu Del.1767'. The back of the frame is marked with hand-written notes regarding the drawing, the portrayed man and the artist: 'Commissions: Secretair Lüders zu Rostock, gemalt im Jahr 1767 (: wie auf dem Tisch-rand bemerkt:) von seinem Schwager, Mecklenburg-Schwerinschen Hof-Portrait Maler Matthieu. Original: Wohlgetroffen. Kunstherrlich. Zum Andenken, [...]'. The drawing is in appealing condition with minimal marks of age. Above the signature, there is a tiny black spot and the upper left corner shows a small tear. The black-painted and partially gilt wood frame shows slight signs of wear. The sheet measures approximately 42 x 32.5 cm, and the total size is about 53 x 43.5 cm.

Georg David Matthieu (1737-1778)

Georg David Matthieu was a German engraver and portrait painter of the Rococo. He was born in 1737 in Berlin and died in 1778 in Ludwigslust. Matthieu had mostly worked as court painter under Duke Frederick in the Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. In 1764 he took service with the Duke and has since then lived in the residence Ludwigslust. There Matthieu made exclusively portraits of the ducal family. Matthieu is now regarded as one of the finest portrait painter of the Rococo in northern Germany. His works can be seen in almost all the castles of the former duchy in Mecklenburg, as well as in the State Museum in Schwerin and the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin.
