Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon "Portrait of a gentleman ", fine watercolor, 1810s 1150 EUR
Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon "Portrait of a gentleman ", fine watercolor, 1810s
This portrait miniature of a gentleman, wearing the Knight Cross of Maltese (St. John) Order and cross of the Sardinian Order of Mauritius and Lazarus is absolutely comparable to works of Carl Ludwig Hummel de Bourdon (for example, see our additional image) and it is - in our strong opinion - also an original work of this artist.
Carl Ludwig 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.
