Empress Maria Feodorovna, consort of Paul I, was an eager cultivator of the arts and excelled in all creative endeavours, from horticulture to music. She shared her mother-in-law Catherine the Great’s love of cameos and learned how to carve cameos herself, taking inspiration from examples in the Hermitage and replicating them under the supervision of her professor Carl Leberecht. The present lot is a cameo depicting Catherine the Great as a Minerva; this was one of Maria Feodorovna’s favourite subjects, and she often presented these cameos to her mother-in-law as gifts.
