This work appears to be thus far only known oil (sic!) portrait of famous Austrian warlord of Napoleonic epoch - Franz Searaph Prince von Orsini und Rosenberg. Although an existing engraved (sic!) portrait of the prince shows him at least twenty years older (see our image nr.8), one immediately and indisputably recognizes the same person in the sitter of "our" portrait.

We believe that the portrait, which is offered here, was commissioned by then 37-year-old Lieutenant Fieldmarshal Orsini-Rosenberg just after he was presented with the highest Austrian award - Order of the Golden Fleece (January 6, 1808). Apart from wearing the badge of this order, the prince wears (drawn through his coat's upper buttonhole) the neck cross of Commander of the Austrian Military Maria-Theresian Order (August 18, 1801) and a chest cross of an order yet to be identified.
For extensive biography of Franz Seraph Prince von Orsini and Rosenberg, see our images nr.9-11 and CLICK HERE.

Our comparison images nr.12-22 convincingly demonstrate that this extremely qualitative portrait could (with high degree of probability) be a work of one of Vienna's leading early-19th-century portraitists, Johann Baptist Lampi the Younger.

Johann Baptist von Lampi the Younger (1775 Trento - 1837 Vienna) was the son of the famous Italo-Austrian portrait painter Johann Baptist Lampi the Elder. In 1783 he came with his father to Vienna, where he studied at the Academy under Fueger and Maurer from 1786. In 1794 he left the Academy to continue his education under his father. In 1795 Lampi the Younger followed his father to St.Petersburg, where, in the same year, he was appointed to Agrée ("naznachenny") of St. Petersburg Imperial Academy of Fine Arts for a copy after the portrait of A.I. Samoylov and, in 1797, to Academician (full member of the Academy) for a portrait of historical painter I.A. Akimov. In September 1804, together with his wife and daughter, Lampi the Younger left St. Petersburg and returned to Vienna. Since that time he (and his family) lived with his father and, like the latter, established himself as a very popular portraitist of the noble society. In 1813, he became a member of the Viennese Academy and, later, also an Honorary Citizen of the City of Vienna.
Portraits by Johann Baptist von Lampi the Younger are often difficult to distinguish from those of his father.

Provenance: English private collection (erroneously thought to be a portrait of King George III - ???)
