Portrait of Antoni Bielski
Information about author
Antoni Bielski was a count, court master of the hunt, owner of the village of Peniak in the Lviv region, and a cavalier of the Order of the White Eagle, which he received in 1782. One of the main places in the family galleries was occupied by spouses’ portraits. These were often half-length portraits of married couples in formal poses. They were always placed side by side. The portrait of Count Antoni is paired with the image of his wife, Tekla Bielski. The painting shows the man slightly turned to the right. He is dressed in a brown kontusz girded with an expensive kontusz belt, on which one can see the Order and the Star of the White Eagle. On the bottom of the painting, there is the author's inscription “Josephus Choynicki pinxit 1782. 12 Aprilis”.
