A celebrated painter known primarily for his portraits of prominent personalities among the arts and the noble classes, Franz von Lenbach garnered the nickname of the "malerfürst, or the "painter prince." This medal features the countenance of his young daughter, engraved by the Austrian artist, Heinrich Kautsch, in a delightful Art Nouveau fashion.
