Ritt initially studied in St. Petersburg at the Academy of Arts, before moving to Antwerp and Paris. Upon his return to Russia in 1792, he became miniaturist to the Imperial Court and was elected to the post of Academician. The offered lot depicts Princess Louisa-Maria-Augusta of Baden, who later became Grand Duchess Elizaveta Alexeevna and married the future Tsar Alexander I. Her exceptional beauty and charming personality captivated not only the Tsar. The Grand Duchess became one of Ritt?s favourite sitters and he painted eighteen portraits of her, three of which were completed within the first few months of her arrival in Russia.
