countess, canoness of Hildesheim, and a German artist, encouraged in her work by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. She was one of the most beautiful and gifted women at the court of Weimar, and many of Goethe's poems bear witness to the lively interest which he took in her artistic development. She painted several portraits, including those of the Grand-Duchess of Saxe-Weimar and of Queen Theresa of Bavaria. In 1829-32 she toured Alsace, Switzerland and Italy, spending a considerable amount of time in Rome. She went to Italy again in 1838-40, visiting Sorrento, Naples and Rome.
