Maria RÖHL (1801-1875) Portrait Miniature c1840

A delightful pencil drawing, possibly a self portrait, by the renowned Swedish portrait artist Maria Rohl.

Maria Christina painted portraits of many of the best known people in Sweden in the first half of the 19th century. Her portraits are exhibited at the National Museum in Stockholm. The Swedish Royal library has a collection of 1800 portraits by her. She was a member of the Royal Swedish Academy and an official portrait artist of the Royal Court.
Maria Röhl was born in Stockholm. She was the daughter of theConsul Jacob Röhl and Maria Christina Kierrman and sister of Gustafva Rohl..
She fell on hard times after the death of her parents in 1822. After her first plans to become a governess, she was educated in drawing by the professor and engraver Christian Forsell; she had already received education in art by the painter Alexander Hambré, and was now taught to make quick and realistic portrait drawings in lead and chalk.
She began to draw the friends of the Forsell family, where she lived, and soon it became fashionable in high society. She was much employed by those who couldn't pay to be painted in oil, and drew a large number of famous Swedes of the time, both aristocrats and actors. Maria Röhl did paint in oil, but the majority of her work are drawings in lead and chalk..
In 1843, Röhl was appointed court painter and between 1843–1846, she studied in Paris at the studio of Leon Cogniet at the French Academy of Arts. After her return, she established her own studio at Brunkebergstorg in Stockholm.
