(b. 1797, Grossbadegast bei Köthen, d. 1857, Berlin)

Two Cuirassiers from the Regiment of Czar Nicholas I

Oil on canvas, 69 x 55 cm
Schloss Charlottenburg, Berlin

This painting is as accomplished as any equestrian group of the period. That valance of brooding skies brings this scene away from the Biedermeier toward the Romantic.
