[Ziethen sitzend vor seinem König.]
[Daniel Chodowiecki.]
[n.d., c.1786].
Rare engraving, proof before letters. Platemark: 460 x 560mm (18 x 22"). Small taped tears. Stain top right corner.
One of a pair of scenes from the life of Fredrick the Great. 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 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.
