More About this Item

Description: The canvas has not been relined and has one large and one smaller tear.Karl Philipp (1661-1742) was the seventh child of Elector Philipp Wilhelm of Palatinate and his wife Elisabeth Amalia Magdalena of Hesse-Darmstadt. Although Karl Philipp was destined for a career in the church, he instead chose to join the military in 1684, and rose to become General Field Marshall. He became Prince Elector in 1716 in the wake of his elder brother Johann Wilhelm's (Jan Wellem) death. Karl Philipp's passing in 1742 marked the end of the Pfalz-Neuburg branch of the Wittelsbach family. This three-quarter length portrait is inspired by the full-figure depiction in the Rittersaal of Mannheim Palace, and depicts the Prince Elector with the orders of the Golden Fleece and of Saint Hubert.
