Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.
Living in Rome from 1857 to 1873, Schubert probably was among the artists fostered by Ludwig I of Bavaria after his abdication. He moved to Dresden in 1873, where he was appointed professor at the Academy of Arts, and was court sculptor in Anhalt, his oeuvre comprising sacral art, busts, monuments and fountains.
Some small ink spots; postmark on verso slightly showing through. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
