Synopsis : Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1803-73) was the outstanding court portraitist of mid-19th century Europe. For Queen Victoria alone he painted over 120 works, and he was also portrait painter to the French court, first to Louis-Philippe, and later to Napoleon III and the Empress Eugenie. Over his long career Winterhalter painted an array of the crowned heads of Europe, and the most beautiful women of the day, many of them dressed in the spectacular silk and tulle confections of the Parisian couturier, Worth. This is a comprehensive survey of Winterhalter's work published for the major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London in 1987, and the Petit Palais, Paris in 1988. The catalogue presents a fully documented account of Winterhalter's life and provides a timely reassessment of his contributions to portraiture. In addition to the catalogue, the book also contains an appendix, an annotated edition of the "Nekrologe und Verzeichnisse der Gemalde von Franz & Hermann Winterhalter", a list of works by Winterhalter and his brother Herman drawn up by their nephew, Franz Wild, and published in Zurich in 1894. The appendix functions, in effect, as a catalogue raisonne, serving as a record of works which have disappeared as well as a checklist for unfamiliar paintings which may emerge in the future.
