The sitter of this small portrait, a young cadet in uniform of Prussian "Garde-Pionier Bataillon" (Guards suppers) is depicted standing in landscape with Fortress Ehrenbreitstein in Koblenz where the 7th Company of that battalion was stationed since 1816 (CLICK HERE and see our comparison image nr.8).
Acquired together with our web # 43439 (both came from the same private estate in Frankfurt am Main) this portrait shows the same Gustav Friedrich Hermann Sontheim, future (from early 1820s) officer of Prussian Corps of Engineers, sitter of our web # 43439.
He is here 17/18-year-old, so he was portrayed about 1820.
In 1823 we find him already as a second-lieutenant of 2nd "Ingenieur-Inspektion" of Prussian Corps of Engineers (see again our web # 43439).
Name of the author of this portrait unfortunately remains unknown. In any case he was (due to high quality of this painting) surely one of the leading portraitists working in the 1st quarter of the 19th century either in Koblenz or in one of its neighbouring towns.
We are very grateful to our permanent advisor, well-known specialist in German military uniforms. Dr. Stanislav Lyulin for his generous help.
