Portrait of Jacob Philipp Hackert

Oil on canvas, 80 x 63 cm
Akademie der bildenden Künste, Vienna

The artist painted the portrait of her colleague Hackert in Paris in 1768 with a softness akin to pastels. In 1776 she applied to the Vienna Academy and was awarded membership after submitting her masterly portrait of Hackert and a history painting depicting Artemisia, which has not survived.
