Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon "Portrait of J. W. Mayer (preparatory study)", watercolor, 1826 1000 EUR
Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon "Portrait of J. W. Mayer (preparatory study)", watercolor, 1826
Found per chance in an antique shop in England, this watercolor is a preparatory study for a (later finished) portrait of certain J. W. Mayer executed in 1826 by the same artist - well-known Viennese miniaturist, Karl Ludwig Hummel de Bourbon. Moreover, the finished portrait of J.W. Mayer has been for a while our collection - see our web #27145.
Carl Hummel de Bourdon was born ca.1769 into an aristocratic family living in Besanšon, France. During the French Revolution he fled from the Great Terror from France and settled in Austria (this suggestion stems from Dr. Bodo Hofstetter (Switzerland); see his recently published catalogue "Portraitminiaturen/ Museum Liaunig", Neuhaus, 2015, p. 371). For the first time he is mentioned in a marriage contract completed in Vienna in 1800. In this document he is named as court artist of Archduke Joseph's (Palatine of Hungary) wife - Alexandra Pavlovna, nee Grand Duchess of Russia. This fact has made some art historian to suppose that Carl Hummel de Bourdon has spent a few years in Hungary in this period. Dr. Hofstetter believes that this supposition is not convincing enough, since the wedding of Alexandra Pavlovna and the Archduke Joseph took place on 30 October 1799, and Hummel's wedding took place in Vienna (and not in Hungary) a few months later. He died in Vienna in 1840 at the age of 71.
