A signed and practically identical Adalbert Suchy's replica of this portrait was offered in Vienna Dorotheum on the 5th of April 2006, Lot 311 (see our additional image).

The sitter was the youngest son of the Grand Duke of Toscana and a future Austrian Kairser (emperor) Leopold II. In 1805 he became a priest, and from 1819 - a Prince-Bishop of Olmuetz in Hungary, followed by his cardinalship in 1820.
Archduke Rudolf was a passionate lover and sponsor of the arts, and a good pianist and composer himself. He was the most prominent pupil of Ludwig van Beethoven, as well as his prime subsidizer - Beethoven was receiving an annual allowance of 1500 thalers from him. Many of Beethoven's compositions were dedicated to the Archduke.

Adalbert Suchy (ca. 1783 Klattau, Bohemia - 1849 Vienna) was a son of a carpenter. In 1802 he became a student of the Academy of Vienna, where he studied under Schmutzer, and where he exhibited between 1820 and 1840. Suchy chiefly painted miniatures and portraits in watercolor, yet, sometimes, he also did pastels and portraits in oils. He soon acquired success and painted a considerable number of personages of the court and aristorcracy, amongst them the Emperors of Austria Franz I and Ferdinand, as well as members of their families. Several of Suchy's works are in the Historisches Museum der Stadt Wien (Wien-Museum). In the past, Suchy's miniatures belonged to the many important Viennese and Czech collections.
