Franz Sterrer – Portrait of a Gentleman – 1863

Portrait of a man in a dark suit and red tie. Two elements of this painting could facilitate the identification of the sitter: the leopard skin on which he is leaning and the ring with the initial "P" on his left ring finger. Superior quality work, signed and dated 1863.

Franz Sterrer, was an Austrian painter of portraits and genre scenes. He was born in Wels (Upper Austria) on November 16, 1818. Pupil of Friedrich von Amerling, one of the most eminent 19th century portrait specialists, Franz Sterrer exhibited at the Vienna Academy of Art from 1840 to 1845. In 1948, he moved to Constantinople, where he produced several portraits commissioned by Sultan Abdülmecit I. There, he married a French woman. After completing his works for the Sultan, the couple returned to France and settled in Ecully, near Lyon, where he died on September 17, 1901.
