Wilhelm II., German Emperor (1859-1941). Signed portrait.

[Berlin], October 1887.

605 x 750 mm. Matted.


As Prince William of Prussia in a Hussar's uniform, on horseback. A beautiful, large-format portrait by the Berlin court photographer Max Ziesler, whose powerful hand-retouching produces a striking three-dimensional effect. With the studio's hallmark and Wilhelm's signature. The mat is inscribed, "Au gentilhomme, gentilhomme; au corsaire, corsaire et demi".

Mat somewhat soiled, photograph slightly spotty and showing a weak scratch.
