Clearly signed and dated 1814, this superior quality, large miniature on ivory is a work of well-known Viennese artist, Adalbert (Albert) Suchy. On verso (backing paper), one reads the following:
"Don Ferdinando Colonna /Principe di Stigliano /1814 /Alb. Suchy pinxit".
Written sometime in the 19th century, this legend is erroneous, for the sitter's factual name was Leopold, Prince of Salerno, son of Ferdinand IV, King of Naples (from 1816 - Ferdinand I, King of the Two Sicilies).

The young Prince Leopold (in 1814, he was twenty four; for his biography, CLICK HERE) was from the autumn of 1814 until May 4, 1815, one of the most important attendees of the Congress of Vienna (CLICK HERE) and the only Bourbon staying in the city during that period.
His 1814-1815 stay in the Austrian capital was mentioned in various memoirs of spectators and participants of the congress (see our images nr.11-12).

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.
