Footnotes

  • The original 1742 painting by Pompeo Batoni (1708–1787) entered the Royal Saxon collections in the 1750s. Painters at Meissen were particularly encouraged to copy works in the Dresden Gallery. Batoni's oil painting was destroyed during the destruction of Dresden in the Second World War.
