Jest to bardzo ciekawy polonik przedstawiający portret młodej Anny Leszczyńskiej, starszej córki polskiego króla Stanisława Leszczyńskiego. Johan Starbus namalował kilka portretów rodziny Stanisława Leszczyńskiego. Może któreś z polskich muzeów byłoby zainteresowane tym portretem? Sporo informacji o Annie Leszczyńskiej można znaleźć w sieci i nie będę ich tutaj przespisywał. Wycena niska.

Anna Leszczyńska (1699–1717) was the eldest daughter of the Polish King Stanisław Leszczyński and his wife, the Castellan of Poznań, Katarzyna Opalińska. Her younger sister Maria (born 1703), married King Louis XV and became queen of France. Anna’s untimely death was probably caused by pneumonia and she was only 18 years old.
In the National Museum’s collections there are two portraits made by Johan Starbus in 1712, one by Anna Leszczyńska when the princess is 13 years old. (NMGrh 1292) and the other by her sister Maria Leszczynska, 9 years old (NMGrh 30) later Queen of France.
In comparison with the portrait in the National Museum’s collections painted by Johan Starbus depicting Katarina Opalinska, 1680-1749, queen of Poland (NMGrh 1293) and depicted in the same pose but wearing a different dress, the portrait above probably depicts Anna’s mother Katarina Opalinska at 32 years old.
The portrait should have been donated to Sofia Elisabet Ridderschantz (1697-1787) to Araslöv (in Kristanstad municipality in Skåne), married in 1761 to the field marshal and governor Georg Bogislaus Staël von Holstein (1685-1763).
