Rare (probably only one existing today) portrait of well-known Vienna benefactor, Baron Eduard Cuny de Pierron (1808 Baumgarten (Vienna) - 1883 Budapest). He was especially known through his constant help in cases of social emergency. In 1894 a street in Vienna, in the 14th district, was named after him - Pierrongasse. This gentleman probably was the younger brother of Jeanette (Louise Johanna) Cuny de Pierron, a young woman from Vienna who is depicted as one of the friends of Franz Schubert on the famous 1821-watercolor by Leopold Kupelwieser (see our image nr.8).

Josef Kriehuber (1800 Vienna - 1876 Vienna) is a very important name in the history of Viennese Art of the 19th century. Already at the age of 7 years he received drawings lessons from his elder brother and with 13 years old (1813) he became a student at the Viennese Academy where he studied until 1818. He lived 4 years in Poland as an art teacher of the family of Prince Sanguszko. In 1822 he came back to Vienna to attend again the Academy in 1823/24. In this time he became one of the best Viennese lithographers. At the beginning the subjects of his lithographs were copies after works of Schwind, Hoechle, Klein etc as well as his own horse studies and military scenes. In 1825 he started dedicating himself to portrait lithograph. In this period he created various portraits of renowned personalities of the aristocracy, musicians, writers, actors and scholars. From ca. 1830 onwards Kriehuber start producing portraits also in watercolor, what made him one of the most requested portraitist of Vienna. In 1860 he became a member of the Viennese Academy of Fine Arts.

Our images nr. 9-14 show several of Kriehuber's watercolor portraits, sold in the last years at the international art auction market.
