Carl von Sales-Attrib. "Fashionably dressed lady", oil on canvas, late 1820s

Price: 4500  EUR

(please note additional 13% tax applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)

This female portrait is a piece particularly interesting for specialists in the 19th-century fashion. Our comparison image nr.6 demonstrates that the sitter - a middle-aged lady - is dressed according to fashion of the late 1820s. Her large hat is decorated with white "forget-me-not" flowers (a kind of coquetry in the flower language). Her magnificent hat, as well as her costume's exquisite fabrics, suggest that this lady was a representative of either aristocracy or wealthy bourgeoisie of her time.

Aquired at a French antique shop as a work of anonymous, North European artist, it turned out to be a painting by (doubtlessly!) the same artist, whose (other) female portrait of the same period was sold at Vienna auction house "Dorotheum" in 2000 (see our image nr.7). The "Dorotheum" auctioneers believed then to be dealing with a work of an Austrian artist from the circle of Carl von Sales.
In our turn, we believe rather that both paintings - the one offered here and the one sold at "Dorotheum" in 2000 - are highly likely singlehanded works of Sales himself.

Carl von Sales (1791 Koblenz, Germany - 1870 Fuerstenfeld, Austria) became in 1815 a student of the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts. From 1816 to 1830 he regularly participated in academic exhibitions. In 1829 the artist took a trip to Italy where he portrayed Pope Pius VIII. It appears that after 1830 von Sales was no longer active as an artist. Among his known works were portraits of various Austrian royalties and members of high aristocracy. Some of them can be viewed today in diverse Austrian and German museums.
