Born into a Catholic family long-established in Dusseldorf, Peter Eduard Ströhling began his artistic career in Russia, under the patronage of Catherine the Great and then her son Paul I. He later returned to western Europe, working periodically time in Italy, France and Austria, where he gained some renown as a portraitist and history painter. Some time in the late 1790s he settled in London where he painted several pictures of the Prince of Wales, future George IV. His highly finished style, typical of n artist trained in the Dutch tradition, was an obvious contrast to the work of contemporary British portrait painters, although he paid tribute to the portrait conventions of the period. The precise date of his death, presumably in London, has not yet been discovered.
