Images of works by F.X. Winterhalter Uploaded!

Phew!!! It only took me a day and a half to re-format and upload in excess of 600 (!!!) images, but this is finally done!!!

Empress Eugenie by F.X. WinterhalterSimilarly to the catalogue entries, these images have been amassed gradually over a period of more than twenty years. Some have been copied from printed books and periodicals that date from the 1820s to the present; a large number have appeared online; and some were emailed to me directly by directors and curators of public and private museums, galleries, and collections; art specialist of numerous auction houses; owners of the actual artworks; descendants of Winterhalter’s sitters; as well as numerous private individuals, academics, and researchers from around the world – and to them my gratitude is endless.

Given the sheer number of images on this blog site, and out of respect and privacy as per individual requests, images are reproduced uniformly as low-res thumbnails.

As you can see, the catalogue is far from being fully illustrated, so additional images are welcome, and your contributions will be gratefully acknowledged!
