des Marées; Gimo (Uppland/Sweden) 1697 – Munich 1776
“ (O)utstanding especially by his use of colors … (Desmarées) is regarded as the most important portrait painter of German rococo ”
“ The tonal values of the material qualities and the direction of light occasionally show almost impressionistic traits and remain mostly unmatched by contemporaries … The full extent of D.s œuvre can hardly be assessed since much in Southern German private estate has not been researched yet … Beside Antoine Pesne and Louis de Silvestre D. belongs to the typical foreign court painters, but takes a leading position particularly acknowledged by contemp. literature ”
