Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
A collection of three posters portraying Joseph II (1741-1791) and Louis Phelypeaux (1705-1777). All of the posters incorporate reproductions of earlier paintings and engravings with French or Latin text describing the subject matter of the images. Two of the posters relate to Joseph II, Holy Roman Emperor and use visual works by Pompeo Batoni (1708-1787) and Theodorus Vallery. One poster portrays Louis Phelypeaux, comte de Saint Florentin--who served as the Minister of Foreign Affairs in France--with an original painting by Louis Tocqué and engraving by Johann Georg Wille. Some of the original works featured on the posters are dated (e.g., the image relating to the coronation of Joseph II was published by Theodorus Vallery in Vienna in 1764). However, the posters' creation dates are unknown.
