Johann Heinrich Tischbein was born as one of nine children in 1722 in Haina in Hesse and belonged to the first generation of a family of highly talented painters, helped to determine the epoch of the late Baroque, Rococo and Classicism in Germany.  Tischbein's talent was discovered early and delivered a Paris scholarship.  He was a student of Carle Vanloo (1705 - 1765) and learned in the five years of his stay the French art of fine portraits in the spirit of classicism.
