Catalogue Updates – Works by Franz Xaver Winterhalter 1855-1860

No 538 – note added: Wild 1894: La fille de la Princesse Bethsy Bariatinskaia; according to its location on Wild’s list, the portrait may have been painted either c.1856-57 or c.1868. Presumably the sitter is one of the daughters of Princess Elizaveta Alexandrovna Bariatinskaia – Princesses Maria (1851-1937) or Elizaveta (1855-1938);

Nos 542 and 543 – Countess Anna Branicka and her Son Wladyslaw – portraits remained by descent in the family; disappeared during the Second World War;

No 547 – Prince Chernyshov – the portrait remained by descent in the family; disappeared during the Russian Revolution, c. 1917);

Nos 560 and 561 – Countess Marie Przezdziecka and her sons – portraits remained by descent in the family; presumed destroyed by fire at Przezdziecki’s palace in Warsaw, 1939;

No 608 – Baron Sina – image and further sitter’s details added, who has now been identified as György Simon Sina, 2nd Baron Sina de Hódos et Kizdia (1810-1876) [thank you H.A. for the image!];

No 612 – Queen Olga of Wurttemberg – the portrait was acquired from Christie’s London, 14 Jun 2006, lot 120; £ 1,072.000 – the highest price paid for a painting by F.X. Winterhalter;

No 640 – Children of Princess Sophia Alexandrovna Gagarinaexplanatory noted added: mentioned on Franz Wild’s list as ‘La Princesse Grégoire Gagarine. Ses enfants’;  respectively, portrayed children presumably are Princes Grigory (1850-1918) Andrei (1856-1921), and Alexander (1858-64); and Princesses Maria (1851-1941, see no 641) and Anastasia (1853-76);

No 658 – Wanda Fürstin zu Putbus (1837-1867) – removed from the list; a cataloguing error based on Franz Wild’s repetition of the above portrait on his posthumous list of Winterhalter’s works; a portrait of Wanda Fürstin zu Putbus by Lauchert, signed and dated 1863, is in a Private Collection (I am grateful to Ms Agnes Heine for this invaluable information).
