N. Koellisch (fl. 1805/10) "Napoleonic soldiers in Austrian monastery", rare watercolor!!, 1809

Price: 2500  EUR

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

It is an extremely rare (only one other (now in Vienna museum "Albertina") is known - see our image nr.13) work of Vienna artist of the early 19th century N. (Nikolaus? Norbert?) Koellisch (Köllisch). The latter was since 1808 gate keeper at the Vienna palace of Archduke Albert (Albert Kasimir von Saxe-Teschen; CLICK HERE); now it is the world-known "Albertina".

The depicted scene (eyewitness of which could be the artist himself) takes place in a wine cellar of a Cistercian (due to monks' dress - see image nr.10) monastery. With a great possibility it is the situated in suburb of Vienna Heiligenkreuz Abbey (CLICK HERE). It is the so-called Second (the first one was in 1805) Occupation of Vienna (summer of 1809) through Napoleonic troops (CLICK HERE). During these several months Köllisch obviosly lost his job and have not lived in Duke's palace - his master together with other Habsburgs left the capital, and palace became residence of Napoleon's stepson, Viceroy of Italy, Prince Eugene de Beauharnais.. One can suppose that Köllisch spent these months in Heiligenkreuz...
