Franz Schrotzberg (1811-1889)-Attrib. "Lady from family of Counts von Hoensbroech", oil on canvas
(please note additional Austrian VAT (Value Added Tax) applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
This, painted (according to sitter's dress and hairstyle) in ca. 1845 oval oil on canvas portrait of a young lady from the German-Austrian family of Grafs (Counts) von und zu Hoensbroech came to sale "From aristocratic property" of Vienna "Dorotheum" (sale on 13th September 2012, Lot 157) from the descendants of Austrian Royal Actual Privy Councillor, Count Clemens von Hoensbroech (1766-1844). This fact let us suppose the depicted lady was either latter's daughter or daughter-in-law (from 1840 wife of his son Franz, Mathilde Franziska nee Baroness von LoŽ-Wissen).
With a great possibility this first-class painting is an original work of well-known Vienna portraitist and court artist Franz Schrotzberg (our images nr. 11-17 with comparisons convincingly support this attribution).
Famous Viennese portrait painter, Franz Schrotzberg (1814 Vienna - 1889 Graz) was a pupil of Vienna Academy and from 1832 exhibited his oil portraits at the academical exhibitions very soon gaining great popularity as a portraitist among the royals and the high society in Austria and abroad (specially for his female portraits). His works can be seen in the Austrian National Gallery "Belvedere" and other noted museums in Austria and worldwide.
