August the Strong
Half-length figure of a younger man with a black wig, wearing dark shining armour with gilded studs, underneath a light-coloured, high-necked white shirt with bib; figure turned slightly to the left, the right arm splayed to the side, the left arm resting on a helmet decorated with [according to Hammerschmidt's information] coloured ostrich feathers; over the left shoulder a broad sash. On the upper left corner of the picture a curtain decorated with gold braid opens, on the upper right corner a view of a village landscape scene in the style of old German painting with a reed-roofed farmstead, a garden decorated with a roundel on which a column stands, and a sparsely leafy tree under which a trotting stag or a unicorn(?) can be seen.
The sitter is shown without the insignia of the Polish royal crown, the armour is perhaps a reference to his participation in the "Great Northern War", in which Matthias Johann von der Schulenburg was also in his service.
According to current knowledge, the paintings from the holdings of Field Marshal Matthias Johann von der Schulenburg were inscribed on the back with identical or nearly identical wording to the entries in his inventories. However, these inscriptions may have been at least partially removed during restoration.
