Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: AFTER THE MONOGRAMMIST HB, PROBABLY BRUNSWICK, 17TH CENTURY PORTRAIT OF AUGUST THE YOUNGER (1579-1666) DUKE OF BRUNSWICK - WOLFENBUTTEL oil on canvas, head and shoulders, wearing a lace ruff and in etched and gilt Greenwich armour, some overpainting, in a carved wood frame 74cm x 54.5; 29in x 21 1/2 The sitter is shown wearing the armour made by William Pickering at Greenwich for presentation by Henry, Prince of Wales, to Duke Friedrich Ulrich of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel in 1612. The armour itself remained in Germany until 1981 and is now in a private collection. Duke August the Younger (1579-1666) was a ruler of considerable erudition. After university he completed a Grand Tour of Italy, Malta, the Netherlands and France. He was regarded by his contemporaries as an outstanding collector and scholar, and it has been said that more poems and verses were dedicated to him than any other ruler of the Baroque period. From 1635 when the reunited Duchy of Brunswick-Wolfenbüttel was assigned to him, he resided at Brunswick, returning to Wolfenbüttel in 1642 when the city was freed from imperial occupation. He rebuilt and renovated the city and the Augustadt (a residential district for craftsmen) including the great Joahnniskirche (1661-4). His greatest achievements as a collector were his collection of clocks and his library of over 135,000 works in 31,000 volumes, housed in the Bibliotheca Augusta, now the Herzog August Bibliothek, a library that continues to be of considerable importance.
