Photographer unknown. Portrait of Georg Prinz von Preußen (1826-1902). Late 1850s. Salt print. 24,5 x 19,5 cm. Mounted to original board (soiled/time-stained in edges), signed by the sitter in ink below the image on the mount.
Friedrich Wilhelm Georg Ernst Prince of Prussia spent his youth at Jägerhof Castle near Düsseldorf as his father was stationed there. He often traveled to Britain, France and Italy, discovering art and literature. The portrait offered here was most probably taken in the 1850s, when he came to Berlin where he was introduced to the salon of Minna von Treskow. In 1874 he took over the protection of the Historische Museum der Stadt Düsseldorf and in the same year he became president of the Akademie gemeinnütziger Wissenschaften zu Erfurt. – Small rubbed spot in upper right, otherwise a finely retouched, overpainted print in very good condition.
