In the collection of the owner's great-grandfather, Germany, by the 1920s;

Thence by descent.

This painting is a second version of the portrait of Elisabeth von Breitenbach, dated to circa 1775, in the Staatsgalerie, Stuttgart.1 Though traditionally ascribed to Johann Heinrich Tischbein (1722-89), more recently Dr. Marianne Heinz has attributed this portrait to his younger brother, Anton Wilhelm Tischbein (written correspondence, 25 January 2018). We are grateful to Dr. Heinz for her help with the cataloguing of this lot and for her endorsement of the attribution.
