Product Description

A beautifully painted miniature portrait of Alexandra of Bavaria, after Joseph Karl Steiler’s original, painted in 1845.

The original was commissioned by King Ludwig I for his Gallery of Beauties at Nymphenburg Palace. The gallery sought to display in 36 portraits the most beautiful women in fashionable Munich.

Painting on ivory would become a popular technique during the late 18th century, after the material became widely affordable. In previous times miniature portraits were painted on pieces of velum or copper panels.

The print is attractively framed in ivory and faux tortoiseshell frame. An attractive loop of gilt brass runs around the edge of the painting.

Size of frame: 14.5 x 12.3cm
Size of Portrait: 8 x 6.2cm
Weight: 109g
