This portrait of Count Anton Lamberg-Sprinzenstein was painted by the Austrian artist Martin Quadal in 1784. Quadal (1736-1808) was a popular and well-traveled classical portraitist and engraver. How he earned his popularity is evident here, but I do wish I knew the name of the dog! That must be a springer spaniel, and he glows with a radiant love. Rather overshadows his master if you ask me.
