This is a large fine 19th century oil on canvas depicting a ‘Spanish Beauty’ with a fan by the world-renowned French painter Henri-Guillaume Schlesinger (1814-1893). The painting is signed by the artist and dated 1863. The painting hangs in an original mid-19th century Charles X giltwood frame with anthemion corners.

As with all of the original antique oil paintings we sell it is offered in the very finest condition it can be for its age, having just been professionally cleaned and re-varnished.

Henri Guillaume Schlesinger studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna before moving to live and work in Paris. Between 1840-1889 he exhibited many paintings at the Paris Salon, becoming one of mid-19th century France’s most popular subject painters. In 1837 Schlesinger produced one of his most famous pictures; a large equestrian portrait of Sultan Mahmoud II which still hangs in the collection of the palace of Versailles.

Although German by birth, in 1866 Henri-Guillaume Schlesinger was made a Chevalier of the Légion d’Honneur, officially becoming a French citizen four years later.
