Rob.t Sayer excudit Londini [c.1786].
Engraving. 300 x 345mm (11¾ x 13½") large margins. Central crease. Slight foxing.
A reduced version of one of a pair of scenes from the life of Fredrick the Great painted by Daniel Chodowiecki and first published 1786. During an audience with his generals Frederick ordered a chair to be brought for the 85-year-old Hans Joachim von Zieten, telling him to sit; when von Zieten refuses to sit in the presence of his monarch, Frederick forces him by threatening to leave. The original companion scene has Frederick asleep at a table, surrounded by his generals: von Zieten tells his companions to let the King sleep and watch over him, as the king has watched over them for long enough. The BM states: 'The address of Sayer might suggest that this is an English piracy, but the style of the plate is certainly German. The most likely explanation is that Sayer commissioned a second plate for the English market directly from Chodowiecki, who entrusted it to one of his pupils'. They do not have a Sayer version.
