Copy of a painting of Prince Alfred by Franz Xaver Winterhalter
Attributed to: William Henry Fox Talbot
The copy is probably a lithographic engraving after an oil painting of Prince Alfred by Franz Xaver Winterhalter. Prince Alfred was Queen Victoria's second son. The painting dates from 1846 when Alfred was two years old and is held by the Royal Collection Trust (inventory number RCIN 405037). The lithograph and Talbot's photograph of it must have been made some time after that date.
