Painter unknown, 18th century
A pair of portraits of princess Wilhelmina of Denmark (1747–1820) and William I, Elector of Hesse (1743–1821). Unsigned. Oil on canvas. Each 61×50.5 cm. (2).
It has previously been suggested that the sitters are prince Charles of Hesse-Kassel (1744–1836) and his wife, princess Louise of Denmark and Norway (1750–1831). It is possible that these four royals have been mistaken for eachother through time, as Louise and Wilhelmina were sisters and Charles and William were brothers.
Provenance: Bruun Rasmussen auction 290, 1972 no. 235.
