Xaver Winterhalter, Franz–#AtoZChallenge “X”

Welcome to “X” in the A to Z Challenge 2017. The 1st Duke of Wellington is my theme for this year’s Challenge.

Yes, this is really stretching it, but does anyone really care? I think not. A nice painting of the Duke with Sir Robert Peel by Franz Xaver Winterhalter (1805-1873) works for one who is on vacation!

From the Royal Collection Trust:

The Duke of Wellington and Sir Robert Peel, Franz Xaver Winterhalter, 1844, oil on canvas

    Hi Denise – this a really good X … if not for Xaver, but for Winterhalter … he was an incredibly famous artist – became so fashionable and beloved by Royalty – Queen Victoria had lots of works done by him … really excellent artist … clever – well done and good to fill in your X – cheers Hilary

      Thanks, Hilary. That is good to hear! I had no idea, of course. Bad weather in Gibraltar so I am dealing with travel issues.
