Carl Hummel de Bourdon (ca.1769-1840) "Prince Joseph Franz Palffy", large miniature, 1821 3900 EUR
Carl Hummel de Bourdon (ca.1769-1840) "Prince Joseph Franz Palffy", large miniature, 1821
Presented here is a large miniature portrait of Prince Joseph Franz Palffy in Hungarian magnate costume (which is often confused with the hussar uniform).. According to the Austrian Biographical Dictionary by Wurzbach, he was son of Prince Karl Hieronimus Palffy and of Maria Theresia Princess von Liechtenstein, wirklicher Hofrat (engl. real Court Counsellor) at the Hungarian Hofkanzlei (Court Office) and Erbobergespan des Pressburger Komitates (a high official rank in Bohemia). In 1772 he married Countess Karolina von Hohenfeld.
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.
