Franz Xaver Winterhalter – Catalogue Updates

Another new image is that of no 28e – the portrait of the renowned Bavarian sculptor, Ludwig von Schwanthaler, of c. 1825-26, which was recently posted on Schwanthaler was a student at the Munich Academy around the same time as Winterhalter, and it is most likely that the portrait stems from this date, and prior to the sculptor’s departure forItaly in 1826. The dating of the portrait is also helped by a prominent watermark on the paper, which bears the date 1826.

The same website yielded another image of a work which was previously unknown to me, and it is with great pleasure that I am adding a new entry to the Catalogue Raisonne – no 28f, portrait of the celebrated opera singer, Katharina Sigl-Vespermann (1802-1877), of c. 1825. As per the explanation above, it is most likely that Winterhalter created the original portrait drawing on which this lithograph was based (it is signed in plate lower right Winterhalter fecit).
