As a result, he created numerous portraits of the landgraves, contributed to the decoration of the Kassel's castles and produced paintings for the art gallery. "Calm and inner awareness was the prevailing character of his countenance. Some deep introspective sense [...] gave his physiognomy a character of its own by Reflection and Serious [...]" (J. F. Engelschall 1797, quoted by Heraeus, Stefanie (Bearb.), Late Baroque and classicism. Catalogue of the paintings in the National museums of Kassel. Wolfratshausen, 2003, P. 282).
