Restoration of the "Henriette von Carlowitz" by Anton Graff (1772)


A generous donation of a portrait of Henriette von Carlowitz has expanded the Nationalgalerie’s collection of important paintings by Anton Graff. The 1772 portrait exudes elegance, grace, youthful freshness and aristocratic stateliness. This deeply expressive painting by the leading German portraitist of the Enlightenment is at once intimate and representative in character. Following a comprehensive two-year conservation-restoration project, a special exhibition at the Alte Nationalgalerie will not only give the public the opportunity to experience the renewed splendour of Graff’s painting, but also document the extensively-researched history of the work.
