Archduke Leopold and Family

From Tiny-Librarian:
A portrait of the family of the future Leopold II (Then Grand Duke of Tuscany) and his wife, Maria Luisa of Spain. It was painted in 1773 by Wenceslaus Werlin. On the left are Archduke Charles, still young enough that he hasn’t been breeched yet and playing with a dog, and Maria Theresa.In the middle, Leopold gestures proudly towards his wife, who has their newest child, Alexander Leopold, in one arm. Her other arm is around their eldest son Francis, the future Francis II. To the right are Maria Anna, carrying an apron full of flowers, and Archduke Ferdinand with a bird on his finger.
