FRIEDRICH VON AMERLING
PORTRAIT OF PRINCESS KAROLINE VON LIECHTENSTEIN (1836-85) AT THE AGE OF ONE AND A HALF
Like no other Viennese painter of the Biedermeier Era, Amerling was able to capture and convey the humanity of his sitters in his portraits of them. Princess Karoline von Liechtenstein appears to challenge the spectator with her gaze, as if perhaps annoyed by our approach – or does she merely seek to make an impression with her glance ? She, too, is sketched with the sort of brisk brushstroke at which Amerling excelled.
