Buckingham Palace - March 2019
This portrait of Prince George was painted as a gift and portfolio piece for the Royal Family. Koropisz took this painting to both Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace where he presented it to the staff present there at the time. The staff in both palaces were very impressed and in turn, Koropisz received a letter written on Her Majesty the Queen’s behalf from a royal correspondent, Miss. J. Vine. The painting is mounted in an oval frame inspired by the artist Winterhalter. This is the only one of Koropisz’s paintings in the shape of an oval.
