de Büren Sisters

Both Jeanne Dorothée (1691-1714) and Jeanne Catherine (1693-1764) de Büren were daughters of David de Büren (1661-1729) and Jeanne Catherine Manuel (1671-1700). I have placed them together in a post because I find their portraits beautiful and I think they resemble each other strikingly even though they were painted at very different times in their lives.

In 1713 Jeanne Dorothée would marry Jean Fischer (1686-1756), Governor of St. Jean.

In 1713 Jeanne Catherine would marry Philippe Mageran (1681-1758), Prussian Chamberlain and Governor of Lausanne in 1737.
