Oil on canvas, 140.0 x 110.0 cm
Private Collection

538. Princess Bariatinskaia, c. 1856-57 or c. 1868
Oil on canvas
Present location unknown (Wild 1894: La fille de la Princesse Bethsy Bariatinskaia; According to its location on the 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))

539. Mme Bernus, c. 1856-57
Oil on canvas
Present location unknown (Wild 1894: Mme Berrus; Note: the entry most likely refers to a member of the Frankfurt-based banking dynasty, the Bernus family. The sitter could be Berta Grunelius, Frau Bernus (1808-77); mother-in-law of Bettina von Guaita, Frau von Bernus (1839-90), painted by Winterhalter in the early 1870s (q.v.). However, the precise identity of the sitter is difficult to ascertain, because there were a number of women called “Frau (Mme) Bernus” alive at the time; no further information is currently available to link the portrait to one of them.)

§ 5 Responses to Franz Xaver Winterhalter: Works 1856-1860

  • Eugene, I’d like to challenge one more item – the attribution, this time. And, golly, I’m questioning the judgement of the curators of my very beloved Compiègne! Though no. 578 is unsigned, it has long been casually attributed to Winterhalter. It is usually considered a pendant to the famous Chapeau de Paille portrait of Eugénie that is in the Hillwood collection. I think this is a case of a painting being called what it’s been called for so long that no one bothers to question it anymore; a common problem in the world of history museums. (We had a similar situation here in Portland. A gorgeous, very important Boucher had been long ago tagged as a portrait of the marquise de Pompadour – when it clearly wasn’t. Only recently rectified.) But unless it has endured some great damage over the course of the years, and been heavily overpainted, there is nothing about this painting, stylistically, that would lead anyone to believe that it is by Winterhalter.

    First of all, it is a very bad painting. His portraits of men have often been thought to be generally lesser than his portraits of women, but there is nothing of Winterhalter’s elegance in this awkward, inconsistent painting. The color and brushwork is extremely flat and generalized; there is nothing of the gorgeous brushwork that Winterhalter is, more than anything, known for. The lighting on the face is “over exposed”, and the modeling is inconsistent with other of his works. The left hand is extremely awkward. Most telling, the foliage in the background is an extremely poor approximation of what Winterhalter did so suavely. His very particular way of suggesting leaves, the way he patterned the trees, sky, clouds so gracefully, and his fluid brushwork is entirely absent from this work. The placement of tree limbs and the apertures of sky are awkward in the extreme here and, frankly, ugly. Simply put, this painting is not – painted – like Winterhalter painted.

    This painting has been at Compiègne for a long time, but is anything known of its history before being given to the collection of Malmaison by the comtesse d’Orsetti? The Hillwood portrait was, of course, commissioned as a gift for comte Bacciochi. Since, to me, there is no doubt at all that this is – not – the work of Winterhalter, in fact the work of a very minor artist indeed, my theory is that it – may – have been painted as a pendant to the portrait that was given to Bacciochi, and then picked up the Winterhalter tag at some point in its history. If you don’t have a trained eye, and you see a portrait hanging near another portrait that has the same format, with a similar pastoral setting, and you know that the two subjects are spouses, you might well assume that they were painted by the same artist. A Winterhalter attribution will always have more caché and actual value than that of some unknown, second-rate artist. And all involved in donations and curatorial pride will always prefer to possess the former so, again, we can’t just assume that the museum benefactors and curators know best; the museums of the world have more than their share of unintentionally mistaken attributions.

    Thanks again for listening, Eugene.

      Hi Stephen,

      Thank you for your comments. Just like yourself, I had seen this painting in the flesh at Compiegne, but when I was looking at the work and comparing it to other eight or so paintings by Winterhalter on view in the same room, it did not ring my alarm bells at all. From memory [and this is dating back to 2005(!)], the painting exhibited similar painterly, pigment, and palette characteristics as other works on display, some of which dated from 1856-1857. Therefore, I had never questioned the authenticity of this work or its attribution to Winterhalter.

      Furthermore, it fits with the three pairs of royal portraits Winterhalter painted in 1857 – those of the French, Russian, and Wurttemberg sovereigns – which according to my research may have been painted in preparation for a large, multi-figure composition of the Stuttgart Meeting of 1857, which was apparently commissioned from Winterhalter, though appears to have never been completed. This would explain in part the ‘sketchiness’ and an ‘unfinished’ nature of these works.

      Once again, thank you for your comments – it is wonderful to keep the Winterhalter debate and conversation going!

      Cheers!

    Hello,
    I would like to know if there are portraits of the Italian sovereigns as the king and queen of the Two Sicilies, the Grand Duke and Grand Duchess of Tuscany, the Duke and Duchess of Parma
    Thanks

    • artsdiary365 says:

      Thank you for your message. According to my research, no Italian sovereign commissioned a portrait from Winterhalter. There is Portrait of Maria Sophia, Queen of Two Sicilies in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, but its authorship is doubtful. Other members of the Royal Family of the Two Sicilies were painted by Winterhalter outside Italy. For example, Winterhalter’s group portrait, Louis-Philippe, King of the French, Receiving Queen Victoria at the Chateau d’Eu, of 1845, includes portraits of Leopoldo, Principe di Salerno (who was a brother of the King of Two Sicilies), as well as of his wife, Principessa di Salerno. Marie-Amelie, Queen of the French, Maria-Christina, Queen of Spain, and Marie-Caroline, Duchesse d’Aumale were also painted by Winterhalter, but their portraits were commissioned by Louis-Philippe, King of the French. I trust this is of help.
