Description:
Joseph Hickel (Leipa/Bohemia 1736–1807 Vienna)
 Portrait of Grand Duke Pietro Leopoldo of Tuscany with the Collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece and the Star and Ribbon of the Royal Hungarian Order of Saint Stephen, established in 1764 oil on canvas, 155 x 120 cm, framed We are grateful to Georg Lechner for suggesting the attribution after examining the present painting in the original. In terms of both dimensions and painterly ambitions, the work, which was executed shortly after Leopold’’’’s accession to power as grand duke of Tuscany, meets all the requirements associated with an official, stately portrait. No further versions of this portrait, which seems to have been painted in the early 1770s, are known. Supported by an imperial stipend, Hickel travelled to Italy in 1768, where he initially sojourned in Milan and Parma. That same year he was admitted to the Academy in Florence. The present painting shows Hickel committed to the tradition of the Meytens school, while also betraying the artist’’’’s familiarity with contemporary portraiture. In 1765, Leopold took over the government of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany at the young age of seventeen years. In the present portrait, he seems a little older. Lechner suggests that the portrait was not made in Florence, but in Vienna. The Josephine console table on which the future emperor supports himself suggests a date of execution around 1770. In the present painting, Hickel shows himself strongly committed to Meytens’’’’ art. The contours, which are softer in comparison to the period’’’’s Italian or Italianate portraiture, and the generous, elaborately rendered details (especially the gold embroidery of the garment) speak in favour of an execution in Austria or Vienna. Further details, such as the type of white lace, the area around the eyes, and the green drapery in the background, lead to the conclusion that the artist must have been a student of Martin van Meytens. Due to these characteristics, as well as the figure style and the general approach, Lechner assumes that the painting is a work by Joseph Hickel. The present painting can be compared to the signed portrait of Emperor Joseph II, dated 1774, in the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum, Vienna.

With an imperial scholarship, he embarked on extended study trips to Italy. In 1769 the academy in Florence appointed him as a member. One year later he executed a portrait of Emperor Joseph II, with which he had such great success that in 1771 he was appointed imperial court painter (Kammermaler). As Joseph II’’’’s court painter, his style influenced the iconography of the emperor.

Description:
Josef Hickel (Bohmisch-Leipa/Bohemia 1736–1807Vienna) Portrait of Emperor Joseph II in a Chevaux Legersuniform, with the Order of the Golden Fleece set withbrilliants, the Order of Maria Theresa, and theOrder of St Stephen, oil on copper, oval, 32 x 26 cm, framed, Provenance: Austrian private collection Josef Hickel was courtpainter to Empress Maria Theresa, for whom he portrayednumerous high-ranking personalities. In 1769 he was appointedmember of the Florentine Academy. In Vienna, where he waslikewise affiliated with the Academy, he was repeatedlycommissioned to paint Emperor Joseph II and portrayed him at leastfive times. He left altogether more than 3,000 portraits. Thepresent painting depends on contemporary English portraiture, a typical feature of which is the hint of a clouded sky in thebackground, so that the sovereign, in contrast tothe meticulous rendering of his appearance, is placedagainst the limitless expanse of space in order to augment hissignificance.

Description:
Oil on canvas Provenance The duc de Berri (according to the 1903 personal inventory ofBaron Nathaniel von Rothschild, loc. cit.). Rothschild inv. no. AR297. Literature 1903 Theresianumgasse Inventory, p. 11, no. 8. 1905 Theresianumgasse Inventory, p. 401, no. 165. Exhibited Vienna, Osterreichisches Barockmuseum im Unteren Belvedere, inv.no. 4258, since 1948. Lot Notes The composition of the present picture is very close to that ofthe portrait of Josef II by Hickel in the Suenska statensPortrttsamling, Gripsholm (no. 641), signed and dated 1773. The second son of the Empress Maria-Theresa, Joseph II did notaccede to power, despite having been co-regent with his mother,until her death in 1780. Strongly influenced by the ideals of histimes, and in particular by the views of the French philosophes, hedetermined to be a monarch governed by the principles of Rousseau,rather than the more traditional Machiavelli. He refused to becrowned, or to take the oath to the loyal constitutions, andintroducing sweeping social reforms throughout his reactionaryEmpire. This he extended to matters ecclesiastical, pushing for thecomplete subordination of the clergy to the State and the severanceof all effective ties with Rome. Opposition to what he understoodto be enlightened policies was regarded as obscurantist, to becorrected with force if necessary. Unfortunately for the Emperor, the vested interests in the oldsystem were powerful enough to resist effectively, but the failureof his ambitions was guaranteed by his introduction ofconscription, which turned even the peasants, whom he had done somuch to emancipate, against him. Threatened revolt in Hungary, andthe actual revolt of Tirol and the Netherlands, together with thedisastrous war with Turkey from 1788-90, forced Joseph to formallyreverse his whole policy of reform. He died broken hearted on 20February 1790.
