Joseph Werner

went to Rome to paint and travelled to France where, at
the court of Louis XIV he painted portraits of both the
monarch himself and of various notables in his entourage;
he also worked on the decorations of the Palace of Versailles. In 1667, he left France but continued to move
in exalted circles. In Augsburg he worked for the Bavarian Elector in Vienna, painting a portrait of Leopold I,
and was then invited to Berlin by the Prussian King Frederik. He earned a reputation as a miniatures painter at
the court of the Saxon King in Dresden. In Berlin, he
was appointed Director of the newly established Prussian
Academy of Arts.
He passed his artistic talents on to his sons; his younger
son Francis Paul becoming a painter of birds and his
first born, Joseph Christopher Werner, becoming a court
painter. In 1764, Joseph Christopher Werner made
sketches of the royal insignia during the coronation of the
last Polish king, Stanisław August Poniatowski. Werner’s
drawings are in the Royal Castle and Cabinet of Engravings at the University Library of Warsaw.[1]
