Mein Marsch von Kloster Ostrog nach Zdrebanik. Montenegro 8. August 1858.
Pen-and-ink drawing on wove paper, monogrammed "VO". 142 x 182 mm. Matted.
Depicting the artist's "March from Ostrog Monastery to Zdrebanik, Montenegro, 8 August 1858". Prince Odescalchi, member of a Vienna-based family of the Roman high nobility, painted genre as well as military scenes. Himself a military officer, he captured many events of his active years in drawings and paintings. He remains a conspicuous figure in art history especially by virtue of the portrait Friedrich von Amerling painted of the orientally garbed five-year-old prince.
From the Ottoman collection of Herry W. Schaefer.
