Classicism   •   Franz Xaver Winterhalter @ Wikipedia

The son of a craftsman was trained early in the workshop of a copper engraver, to then work in Munich at the Academy of Fine Arts. Travels to Italy followed, where he studied especially the Venetian school of painting. Soon afterwards he moved to Paris, the city where the first imperial and royal portraits were written.

Enthusiastic about Winterhalter's virtuosity, Napoleon III. He has at his disposal a studio in the Tuilleries. The path to portraiture reached its peak with the paintings of Empress Sisi of Austria. Meanwhile, the most famous German portrait painter ascended, commissioned Emperor Franz of Austria, the painter to make a picture of the Empress. It was to be a personal, intimate work that was not intended for the public eye. For these he had already made a representative portrait of Sisi and her husband. Now a work should be created only for the eyes of the Emperor.

The portrait shows the beautiful, universally popular Empress with open hair in a delicate silky, loose-fitting dressing gown. It was to decorate the emperor's study. Everywhere word had spread about how flattering and lovely the painter was in portraying women in particular. The orders reached such a high number that they were often unmanageable for Winterhalter alone. He therefore had his brother Hermann , who was working in his studio, at least make copies usual for state portraits. © Meisterdrucke
