Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller: Family Neuhaus (Austria, 1827)



Figure 1.--This is the family of Legation councillor Theodor Joseph Ritter von Neuhaus (c1770-1855) with his wife Albertine and their children Theodor and Berta. The children look to be about 3-8 years old. The portrait was painted in 1827. Father wears a double-breasted jacket with a short front and long tails. Mother is real fashion plate. She has an amazing straw hat. She had satiny dress with diaphanous sleeves. One thing I find fascinating about woman's fashions is the length we see here that they went to hide legs but had no problem with low necklines. Note Berta's pantlettes, but the low necklines on their sresses. Notice how similar the girl's dress is to mother dress. The major difference is Berta's the higher hem line, but pantalettes were used to make sure that her legs were covered. Theodor wears a short blue jacket and striped pants. The large open collar is similar to those worn on skeleton suits, but his outfit does not seem to be a skeleton suit. This is a little difficult to determine because the boy's arm covers the waistline.

Here we know something bout the family. It is the family of Legation councillor Theodor Joseph Ritter von Neuhaus (c1770-1855). Legation councillor we thinks means an important staff member at diplomatic post. He is pictured with his wife Albertine and their children Theodor and Berta. The children look to be about 3-8 years old. The portrait was painted in 1827. Father wears a double-breasted jacket with a short front and long tails. Mother is real fashion plate. She has an amazing straw hat. She had satiny dress with diaphanous sleeves. One thing I find fascinating about woman's fashions is the length we see here that they went to hide legs but had no problem with low necklines. Note Berta's pantlettes, but the low necklines on their sresses. Notice how similar the girl's dress is to mother dress. The msjor difference is Berta's the higher hem line, but pantalettes were used to make sure that her legs were covered. Theodor wears a short blue jacket and striped pants. The large open collar is similar to those worn on skeleton suits, but his outfit does not seem to be a skeleton suit. This is a little difficult to determine because the boy's arm covers the waistline.
