where he was commissioned a series of 75 porcelain plaques by King Ludwig I of Bavaria (delivered from 1853 on). Thirty eight
were copies of old master paintings such as "Madonna" after Raphael, while the rest were after Joseph Stieler's portraits in the
King's Schönheitsgalerie in the Residence. The portrait of Prince Consort Albert for the famous Jewel-Cabinet, made in 1854 for
Queen Victoria, is among his best works. He died in 1886 at Schoenberg in Lower Bavaria.
