This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Johann Christof Rauschner was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1760, the youngest son of Christian Benjamin Rauschner, who was a "Modelleur, Stuccateur and Bossirer" in that city. Johann is known to have followed the same trade as his father. 

Apparently, he changed his name to John Christian when he was living in America.  He wandered all up and down the East Coast, for he can be traced by his waxes.  He was in Salem and Beverly in 1809, in Boston in 1810, but he was also in Plymouth, Hartford, New York,  Philadelphia, as well as other places.

The wax of Rauschner's portraits is colored all the way through, and only the small parts like the eyes, eyebrows, and slight shadows are painted in.  After the wax was pressed into a mould color by color and removed, the modeller then added the little touches of lace, of flower, of comb, ring, and jewelled ornament.

Written and submitted October 2005 by Don Shelton, collector of miniature portraits
