OIL PAINTING: Kaizer Franz I, 1834
Amerling was the favourite court painter and from 1830 one of the most popular artist in Vienna. His reputation was based on the life-size portrait of Emperor Franz in 1832. In this portrait - Kaizer Franz I the traditional Baroque attributes of a royal portrait are combined with a depiction of "natural man". This is what makes the portrait by Amerling unconventional.
