Executed about 1820 (the sitter was then twenty), it is probably the earliest known portrait of celebrated Austrian aristocrat (1800-1870; for his extensive biography, CLICK HERE and HERE) Prince Friedrich Karl zu Schwarzenberg.The latter became the Knight of Maltese (St. John of Jerusalem) Order at the young age. Here, he is depicted in age of ca. 20, wearing the Order's uniform and its Knight's Cross. A lithograph by Josef Kriehuber produced thirteen years after "our" portrait was painted (i.e. in 1833; see our image nr.7) shows the prince wearing coat of Maltese Order and sideburns (fashion of the 1830s). The (chronologically) subsequent portrait of Prince Friedrich Karl zu Schwarzenberg (1835; see our image nr.8) shows a man with same facial characteristics.

It is a signed work by one of Austria's best miniaturists of the first half of 19th century, Adalbert Suchy.

Adalbert Suchy (ca. 1783 Klattau, Bohemia - 1849 Vienna) was a son of a carpenter. In 1802 he became a student of the Academy of Vienna, where he studied under Schmutzer, and where he exhibited between 1820 and 1840. Suchy chiefly painted miniatures and portraits in watercolor, yet, sometimes, he also did pastels and portraits in oils. He soon acquired success and painted a considerable number of personages of the court and aristorcracy, amongst them the Emperors of Austria Franz I and Ferdinand, as well as members of their families. Several of Suchy's works are in the Historisches Museum der Stadt Wien (Wien-Museum). In the past, Suchy's miniatures belonged to the many important Viennese and Czech collections.
