Portrait of Stanislaw Potocki
Information about author
Stanislaw Potocki (1698–1760) Polish nobleman, military and political figure of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth (marshal of the Polish Sejm, ambassador), patron of the arts, an architect. He was the voivode of Smolensk, Poznan and Kyiv. He was the son of Jozef Potocki and Wiktoria Leszczynska. This half–length portrait of Stanislaw Potocki follows the traditions typical for 18th–century ceremonial representational portraits, which are characterised by their monumentality. On a dark background, there is a half–length figure wearing an olive green mantle and a blue ribbon with the Order of the White Eagle. The bulky figure with a firmly planted head, high forehead, puffy lips, thick moustache and double chin has a heavy and stern appearance.
