Are there any more portraits of Archduchess Marie Elisabeth?
Sketch (chalk and pencil with watercolour) of Archduchess Marie Elisabeth by Swiss portrait painter Jean-Etienne Liotard:
The picture was made in 1762. It's part of a set showing Maria Theresa's children.
(so, here are some more pictures of MT's daughters
Johanna Gabriella (1750-1762):
Marie Josepha (1751-1767):
...and the boys
crownprince Joseph (1740-1790), (later Emperor Joseph II; 1780-1790)
Peter Leopold (1747-1792) (later Emperor Leopold II) ?
I'm a bit confused... I've found these portraits together (except of Joseph, also from 1762) on the website of a monographic exhibition of Liotard (Geneva, 2002). According to the website the last one shows "Pierre", it must be Peter Leopold (Maria Theresa had no son named simply "Peter" , but the boy doesn't look like a teenager [PL was already 15 in 1762!]).
Brigitte Hamann reproduces the following drawing in her Lexicon of the Habsburgs as the portrait of Peter Leopold. According to the swiss website it shows Archduke Karl Joseph, DIED IN 1761. So I believe Hamann, and I believe THIS is Peter Leopold:
Peter Leopold with brother Emperor Joseph II in 1769 by Pompeo Batoni to compare:
(But who is "Pierre"? Is that Maximilian Franz (1756-1801), Elector of Cologne, Archbishop of Muenster [& Beethoven's patron as well...), MT's youngest son, aged 6 in 1762? Hard to find out:
(with sister Marie Antoinette & her husband Louis XVI of France)
