Biographical/historical: The Spanish-born dancer Maria Medina married Salvatore Viganò, an Italian choreographer, in the 1780s, and danced with him in many of his ballets. The couple performed in Vienna from 1793 to 1814, at a time when the German painter Peter Eduard Ströhling was also in the city. Ströhling, whose last name has many variants including Stroely or Straely, was known for his portraits and figure subjects. Six of his portraits are held by the Royal Collection in London, where he died ca. 1826.
