Emperor Maximilian

Emperor Maximilian mustering his troops by the Austrian artist Maximilian Liebenwein (1869-1926). Despite beeing a typical Art Nouveau painting the influence of the Renaissance engravings by Dürer or Holbein is obvious.

  1. You didn't give the measurements of the painting, but Liebenwein packed a great deal of detail into the image. And a great deal of colour!
