Catalogue Updates – Works by Franz Xaver Winterhalter 1860-1865

No 708 – Countess Tolstaia – the sitter’s identity is not confirmed, though it is quite possibly Countess Alexandra Andreievna Tolstaia (1817-1904), lady-in-waiting and sometime Imperial Governess at Russian Imperial Court.

No 759 – Countess Tyszkiewicz – the portrait appeared at Tajan, Importants Tableaux Anciens, 12.06.1995, lot 141, erroneously catalogued as Lady Mary Hamilton. It was entered as such in my previous catalogue, no 803, which was based on Franz Wild’s entry for a portrait of Lady Mary Hamilton, also painted around 1865-66. Recent research has uncovered that this painting was reproduced in Loliée 1907 as a portrait of Countess Tyszkiewicz. The exact identity of the sitter remains unknown, as there were a number of women of that name at the time.

No 803 – this entry remains as a portrait of Lady Mary Douglas-Hamilton (1850-1922), later Princesse de Monaco, Fürstin Festetics von Tolna, in deference to the corresponding entry on Franz Wild’s list.
