Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1805-1873)
“Countess Alexander Nikolaevitch Lamsdorff” (1859)
Oil on canvas
Located in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City, New York, United States
The twenty-four-year-old countess depicted here was the wife of Alexander Nikolaevitch Lamsdorff, a Russian aristocrat and Francophile. The book of English poetry in her lap is thought to be a reference to her father, Ivan Alexandrovitch Beck, a poet and translator. Her choice of a fashionable day dress may have been suggested by Winterhalter, who is known to have advised his sitters on their wardrobe and posed them to their best advantage in his studio.
So I guess I should make a post with all of my commission info…! Here’s my basic price listing:
Sketch $10 (+5 per additional character) Flat Color $20 (+10 per additional character) Full Color starting at $35. (Any detailed backgrounds/robotics/additional characters will be extra, depending on what you want. For example, in the portrait above there are two characters, a somewhat detailed background, and a complex robotic arm, which would put the price somewhere around $60.) Space Background $20 (give me the dimensions and a color palate and I will turn it into space!)
For other styles, such as lineart and/or cell shading, please ask me! The process is a little different and out of my regular comfort zone, so the pricing would be different.
**I will not draw anything depicting underage relationships, incest, or openly racist material (etc). Ask me about nsfw, but I won’t draw anything super explicit.**
