Columbus Before Ferdinand and Isabella, (painting)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 56 (Sale info: $3250.00).
"39 x 52. This picture was painted in Munich, Bavaria, in 1843, and is one of Leutze's very best works. For variety of character, refinement, true sentiment and concentration of interest, unequaled by any of his works. The composition is full of interest: Columbus is an earnest and dignified figure; the king, queen, and attendants, serious and attentive; the light and shade is well managed; the accessories, including the costumes and architecture, are carefully studied and beautifully painted - all showing that repose in the treatment of such a subject which denotes a masterly hand." [Price and buyer noted in contemporary hand.]
