FRIEDRICH VON AMERLING
PORTRAIT OF THE FUTURE PRINCE JOHANN II VON LIECHTENSTEIN (1840-1929) ON A WHITE PONY
In 1845, Amerling fulfilled the commission of Prince Alois II to paint this large-format portrait of the later Prince Johann II. While the oil sketch (III.18) presents a vivid and direct image of the boy, the completed painting has forfeited this vitality in favour of a highly formal style.
