Antique Hand Painted Miniature Portrait of Lola Montez, Lady with Ringlets


Distinguished lady with ringlets (Lola Montez) - square portrait miniature, circa 1900-1920 "Signed HIL" Beautiful hand painted miniature portrait of Elizabeth Rosanna Gilbert (Grange (County Sligo), 17 February 1821 – New York, 17 January 1861), better known by the stage name Lola Montez, was an Irish dancer and courtesan. She had a relationship with King Lodewijk I of Bavaria for some time. Montez’s behaviour attracted the attention of the Victorian press. This is a miniature of a painting done by Joseph Karl Stieler, the court painter of the Bavarian Court during the 1800s. Painted after the 1847 original by Joseph Karl Stieler (1781-1858) - the original is part of a series of 34 portraits of pretty Bavarian women, the so-called "Schönheitengalerie" of Schloss Nymphenburg. It has a square giltwood frame with ruffled leaf edge and glass covering the painting. Hand painted and signed, see the photo's for the signature on the right, halfway up. Dimensions: 4.75" x 5.5" x .83" deep Image is 2.75" x 3.5" The backside has been glued with paper, therefor I did not remove it from its frame. The back area has some tears on the backing as well as a faded sticker that says L. Montez.
