Baron Christoph Haller von Hallerstein "Profile of a young aristocrat", fine miniature, 1790s
On view here is a very typical (CLICK HERE FOR OTHER WORKS OF THIS ARTIST IN OUR POSSESSION) work of well-known German, turn of the 19th century miniaturist, Baron Christoph Haller von Hallerstein.
Baron Christoph Haller von Hallerstein (1771 Hilpoltstein near Nuremberg - 1839 Nuremberg) devoted himself after studying law to painting, which he studied in Stuttgart. He started with landscape, but soon painted mainly miniatures, made silver point drawings and was an etcher. In 1799 he worked in Dresden where he was on friendly terms with Graff and Grassi. In the following year (sic!) he came to Berlin and after 1806 to Nurnberg. The Berliner years were for the artist especially prolific. He was drawing teacher of the Prussian Crown Prince (later King Friedrich Wilhelm IV), teacher of etching for Prince Anton Heinrich Radziwill and the young Clemens von Metternich, later Prince and Austrian Cancellor. The artist portrayed during these years the whole Prussian royal family. In 1812 he lived for a few months in Paris, but otherwise continuously until his death in Nurnberg.
