An unknown image most probably from the same sitting Hanfstaengl made with Eugenie von Klenze, the daughter of the architect Leo von Klenze, in 1854. The most famous image of this sitting was recently shown at the "Nude Visions" exhibition in the Stadtmuseum in Munich as a salt print from a collodion glass plate negative. The print offered here is from a paper negative but does appear to have been taken during the same time as the two more well-known prints which were made from glass negatives. It is one of the earliest photographs by Franz Hanfstaengl who was still making lithographs in 1854.
