Catalogue Note

This charming miniature dates to circa 1771 and shows the two daughters of Johann Friedrich Bause (1738-1814), an engraver from Leipzig. Friederike Charlotte, seen here on the right, became an accomplished pianist, while Juliane Wilhelmine, on the left, grew up to be a talented artist. Füger depicts the girls as children, standing in a garden, close to a birdcage.
