The Habsburgs / Emperor Franz Joseph
« on: March 04, 2006, 05:30:49 AM »
I've found this rather interesting and unusual portrait of Franz Joseph on the Hermitage website. It was painted in 1874 by Heinrich von Angeli. FJ's wearing some kind of Russian uniform, isn't he? The uniform and the location suggests that the picture was a diplomatical present. Any idea of the occasion? Thanks,
