The couple in costume, (Thanks Orleans from dinastias!)



This photo of Fritz seems to show him more trim and his facial structure and nose a bit thinner than his usual appearance. Of course his beard is a bit less weighty, but this look is one of Fritz' best. Good looking man for sure.

What a weird portrait for  a kronprinzenpaar!. It could be another mislabeled one ?. I ve seen another osimilar, labeled as "queen Victoria and Albert", but in the end it wasnt them.

Yes it is but weird for a royal couple, even more if its a portrait of the era (That kind of demostrations of love were private...)

I've seen it labeled as them--perhaps in a book? It was supposed to represent Vicky sending Fritz off to war.

I have seen this labeled as such before, as well. Unfortunately, the style does not allow us the clearly ID either Vicky or Fritz; could be anyone, really. And there's no identifiers other than the Knights Cross he is wearing, but that was not only for the royal family.

nonetheless, it is a nice image and in spirit with their relationship. And it is far more likely that a casual or affectionate painting would be made of German royals than, say, the the english cousins who were more prim and proper.

Dashing Fritz!



Interestingly the card is embossed "1885" which is a nice detail!
