Miniatura. August II Mocny

Spotkanie polskiego krola Augusta II Mocnego z krolem Prus

Miniatura bardziej dla historyków lub kolekcjonerów miniatur-poloników niż dla kolekcjonerów malarstwa. Warto jednak odnotować miniaturę, kopię oleju Louisa de Silvestre (1675 – 1760), przechowywanegow w Galerii Drezdeńskiej a powstałego na pamiątke spotkania obu królów.

Powiększając obie prace widać różnice w artyźmie obu malarzy.
