Royal Vienna Exquisite 19th Century Hand Painted Portrait of "Countess Potocka" 12" x 9" Plaque, Artist Signed
Delfina Potocka, née Komar (March 1807 – April 2, 1877), who was a Polish Countess, was noted for her beauty, intellect and artistic gifts. In her youth she was a piano student of Chopin's. Delfina Potocka was born in Murowane Kuryłowce, Podolia (present day Ukraine) in March 1807. In 1825, just 18 years old, she married Count Mieczysław Potocki (thereby becoming a countess), with whom she had two daughters. Unhappy in her married life, she eventually divorced Potocki moving abroad spending much of her life in Paris.
This is an exquisite unmarked Royal Vienna hand painted example of the young Countess Potocka, most likely in her early 20's, and painted Pre-1900. The gorgeous Painting has been framed in a fancy brass art nouveau frame and appears to be the original frame for the Plaque. The artwork is just incredible so please do look at my posted photos. The brass frame measures 12" x 8-7/8", while the Plaque, itself, measures 5-7/8" x 4-1/8".
The beautiful Royal Vienna "Countess Potocka" Plaque is in very good condition and totally free of chips, cracks, or or damage. The frame is in very good undamaged condition with typical age wear.
The exquisite "Countess Potocka" Plaque displays "Potocka's" name in script on the backside and additionally has an incised "407" number and several old pencil numbers. [See photos]. The Plaque has been Artist signed [see last photo].
The gorgeous vintage hand painted Royal Vienna "Countess Potocka" Plaque shows and displays exceptionally well.
