Moritz Michael DAFFINGER

Vienna 1790 - 1849 Vienna

Portrait of a hussar officer

signiert am rechten Bildrand: Daffinger

watercolor on ivory in a gilt brass frame, 7.7 x 5.8 cm

 

It depicts a young officer in a hussar uniform, with gold ribbons on a black uniform and a white cape. The miniature was created in the early 30ies of the 19th century.
There are several portraits of this size and with representations of younger officers who follow this principle of composition. And it is precisely in these portraits that Daffinger can follow a realism and show everyone in their individual appearance.
