(b. 1741, Chur, d. 1807, Roma)
Portrait of Prince Stanislaus Poniatowski1786
Oil on canvas, 77 x 54 cm
This painting was a study from the model, without hands, for a full-length portrait. The sitter, Prince Stanislaus Poniatowski (1754-1833) was the nephew of the last King of Poland, Stanislaus Augustus (1732-1798) and son of Casimir, the King's older brother (1721-1800). The portrait was executed in Rome, where Angelica Kaufmann settled in 1782 and had a great reputation as a portrait painter of the aristocracy.
