Very rare framed mezzotint on silk. Silk 455 x 355mm (18 x 14"). Frame 530 x 430mm (20¾ x 17"). Slightly warped but very good condition considering it is on silk! Unexamined outside of frame. Any silk engravings of this period in very good condition are extremely scarce.
Three quarter portrait of Frederick (Friedrich) Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth (1711 -1763), wearing armour, cloak, sash and holding a baton. He was a member of the House of Hohenzollern and Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth and eldest son of Georg Frederick Karl, nominal Margrave of Brandenburg-Bayreuth-Kulmbach (1688-1735), by his wife Dorothea of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Beck (1685-1761). His name has been added to the official name of the University of Erlangen, which he founded in 1743: the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) (English: University of Erlangen-Nuremberg). Gottfried Eichler the Younger (1715-1770) was an engraver active in Augsburg and son of German painter and draughtsman Gottfried the Elder (1677-1759).
