    Similar views were carried out by Johann Friedrich 'Pascha' Weitsch (1723-1803) who painted the Carl I, Duke of Brunswick Service.
    Siegfried Ducret attributes this type of painting to the artists Ahrend August Hartmann or J.B. Junge, after paintings by Franz Edmund Weirotter and his Suite de paysages, dedié à Monsieur Wille. See Siegfried Ducret, Fürstenberger Porzellan, II (Brunswick, 1965), pp. 32-33, pl. 7, 8 & 9.
