""princess Kotschoubey""
Portrait of Princess Kotschoubey - 19th century German school Franz Xaver Winterhalter (St. Blasien 1805- Frankfurt in 1873) This extraordinary female portrait is obviously the work of the famous German master FX Winterhalter, one of the greatest court painters of post-Napoleonic Europe. It is a superb representation of the Ukrainian princess Kotschoubey, residing in a majestic palace in Nice on the French Riviera, then an important Russian colony. The painting represents the princess at a young age (it will be immortalized later in 1860 in a famous painting now in the Baltimore museum dressed in black), and presents itself in all its exceptional beauty with a burst of lights and colors hardly matched . The external context instead of a monochrome background is unusual for the W. and we find it with the same characteristics in his most extraordinary works. (See some examples) Describing painting is really difficult as it is full of virtuosity and dazzling nuances. The beautiful original frame of the painting measures 170 x 145. (Canvas 105 x 130) -------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------- ------------------------- Franz Xaver Winterhalter (April 20, 1805 - July 8, 1873) was a German painter. He worked in many European Courts, such as Karlsruhe, Paris, London, Prague and Moscow, making portraits of sovereigns, such as that of King Louis Philippe of France in 1839 (at Versailles) or that of Queen Victoria with his family in 1842 at Windsor Castle. She also painted three famous portraits of Empress Elizabeth of Austria (Sissi) and Empress Eugenie of France was portrayed in the guise of Queen Marie-Antoinette. Winterhalter is famous for his mastery of faithfully making all the folds and tactile characteristics of dresses and hairstyles on canvas in a faithful manner.
