Comment on 30.11.1804

This is the German sculptor Konrad Heinrich Schweickle, who finished the statue Amor als Sieger (Eros Nikator) in the autumn of 1804. The statue attracted attention in Rome and was commissioned in marble by Prince Friedrich I of Württemberg (1754-1816). Today the statue is in Residenzschloss Ludwigsburg in Stuttgart, cf. Deutsche Biographie.
