Winterhalter was active in south Moravia, a frequent collaborator of Maulbertsch, and one of the last major figures in the Central European tradition of grand decoration. This is a preparatory study for an illusionistic fresco of the founders of the Premonstratensian Monastery at Zabrdovice (Czech Republic). His only signed and dated drawing, it reveals Winterhalter’s debt to Maulbertsch in the broad description, mobile light and iridescent color.
