Under pressure from fierce opposition to his rule, Stadtholder William V and his family fled The Hague in 1785. They returned two years later and the stadt¬holder’s authority was restored. This provided the occasion to commission a series of portraits of the members of his family from the portraitist Tischbein. The artist produced a fashionable group of oval portraits in pastel. The giltwood frames were made by the Hague framemaker Hendrik Ebbens.
