Kilka portretów polskich rodzin królewskiech z nadchodzących aukcji. Katarzyna Opalińska (1680 – 1747) była żoną króla Stanisława Leszczyńskiego. Jej dwa portrety, w tym miniatura znajdują sę na rynku francuskim. Obok królowej, widzimy również portret Stanisława Leszczyńskiego (1677 – 1766). Te trzy prace są wycenione dość przystepnie.  Natomiast mam wątpliwości co do portretu Augusta II Mocnego (1670 – 1733) w Schloss Ahlden w Niemczech. Ten dom aukcyjny wielokrotnie już sprzedawał falsyfikaty polskiego malarstwa i nabija ceny estymacyjne pod niebiosa .

Portrait of August the Strong as August II. King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania and as Frederick August I Elector of Saxony

Lot 2266. David Hoyer (1667 Auerswalde – 1720 Leipzig) attr; Portrait of August the Strong as August II. King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania and as Frederick August I Elector of Saxony
This representative portrait, painted around 1700, depicts August the Strong (1670 – 1733) as a young king shortly after his acquisition of the Polish royal dignity in 1697, by which he not only achieved a significant increase in rank as crowned head, but also secured greater political sovereignty. This is also expressed in this painting. August the Strong had himself depicted with a shoulder-length allonge wig in a breastplate, wearing a red ermine cloak embroidered with golden royal crowns. As a symbol of his power and rank, a royal crown and an imperial orb are also depicted on his right. At the same time, Augustus the Strong demonstrates his power as a general by holding a corresponding staff in his right hand, while a battle scene with a horseman is indicated in the background. This could be seen in reference to the Nordic War fought in 1700-1721 for supremacy in the Baltic region, in which the Saxon-Polish army under August the Strong also participated in alliance with Tsar Peter I of Russia against Sweden. Only a few paintings by the portrait painter David Hoyer have survived, mostly only engravings after his portraits. Hoyer studied under the Bohemian portraitist Johann Kupetzky; as a sought-after artist, he worked not only for the Saxon-Polish royal and electoral court, but also for Brandenburg-Prussia and Hesse-Cassel.
