David Klöcker Ehrenstrahl, "Jaktrast"

An exciting painting with an exciting provenance, it originally comes from the Bondeska collections at Gimmersta, Södermanland. Ehrenstrahl's original artwork, executed in 1671, is part of the collections at Drottningholm Palace. The studio painting in this season's auction has almost identical dimensions and is documented in Bertil Rapp's book on Ehrenstrahl's animal paintings.

Johan Tietrich Schoultz, "The battle at Uransari June 16, 1790"

Johan Tietrich Schoultz (1754-1807) was a naval officer and artist. He is known for depicting the archipelago fleet's participation in Gustav III's Russian War during the 1780s and 1790s. As he took part in the battles, these are genuinely momentary snapshots of the conflicts and thus historically significant. In the Battle of Uransari in the Finnish Gulf, the Swedes surprised and defeated a more significant Russian force.

Johan Sylvius, "Aurora, Goddess of dawn"

This painting, which initially comes from the collections at Casimirsborg in Småland, is actually an older ceiling mural and predates the current Empire manor. Information about Sylvius is scarce, but it is known that he was born in Sweden in the 1620s and spent extended periods abroad, including Italy and England. He was employed by Queen Dowager Hedvig Eleonora and executed several ceiling murals at Drottningholm Palace.

Per Krafft d.ä., Gustaf III (1746-1792)

It doesn't get much more royal than this. The portrait was given as a gift by Gustaf III to Fredrik Vilhelm von Hessenstein, the son of Fredrik I and Hedvig Taube. The painting has been passed down through generations. The fact that the frame is most likely crafted by the ornamental sculptor Pehr Ljung only adds to its value.
