About artist/note:

Amalia von Schintling was the daughter of Major Lorenz von Schintling and Baroness Theresia von Hacke. Over the objections of her fiancee, cousin Fritz von Schintling, Amalia's father allowed her to be portrayed in Ludwig I of Bavaria's Gallery of Beauties. Amalia died of Tuberculosis at the age of 19, before the wedding, only shortly after completion of the painting in 1831.

Provenance:

Collection of the late Mrs. L.H. Condé, Toronto
