Pair of 18th Century École Française Portraits of the House of Habsbourg

About

An extraordinary and monumental pair of 18th century École Française oil on canvas portraits of Marie-Josèphe of Habsbourg of Austria (1699-1757), wife of Frederick Augustus II of Saxony, Elector of Saxony, and of their son Frederick IV of Saxony (1722-1763), bearing the Imperial and Royal Order of the White Eagle. Both set in their original giltwood frames. Attributed to the original portraits by the artist Louis de Silvestre. The House of Habsburg, also called the House of Austria, was one of the most influential and distinguished royal houses of Europe. The throne of the Holy Roman Empire was continuously occupied by the Habsburgs from 1438 until their extinction in 1740. Louis de Silvestre (1675- 1760) Born in Paris, was a French portrait and historical artist. Sylvester entered the Académie de peinture et de sculpture in 1702 and was appointed professor in 1706. He was court painter to King Augustus II of Poland, and director of the Royal Academy of Arts in Dresden.
