Franz Xaver Winterhalter (St.Blasien 1805- Frankfurt 1873)
This extraordinary female portrait is evidently the work of the famous German master F.X. Winterhalter, one of the greatest court painters in post-Napoleonic Europe.
It is a stunning depiction of the Ukrainian princess Kotschoubey, resident in a majestic palace of Nice on the French Riviera, then an important Russian colony.
The painting depicts the princess at a young age (it will be immortalized later in 1860 in a famous painting now at the Baltimore museum dressed in black), and presents itself in all its exceptional beauty with a glitz of lights and colors hardly matchable.
The outdoor 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 the painting is really difficult so much is full of virtuosity and dazzling nuances.
The beautiful original frame of the painting measures 170 x 145.
