Karl Eusebius von Liechtenstein (2nd Prince)

man / Oostenrijks
Karl Eusebius from travels, but devoted all his money and energy to promoting the arts in his own countries, through assignments to craftsmen, architects, horse breaders and artists, as well as by collecting art (paintings, sculptures, prints): 'Money is only to leave beautiful monuments to eternal and immortal memory' [Fleischer 1910, p. 15: Das Geldt is nur, schene Monumenta zu hinterlassen zue ebiger und unsterblicher Gedechtnuss']. A special interest of him was alchemy, the making gold, which many of his contemporaries were also entangled in. Large sums of money were also devoured by his perpetual processes with the tax authorities until an agreement was finally reached in 1671 (Fleischer 1910, p. 16-17)

Hier wordt vermeld waar de kunstenaar (langere tijd) heeft gewerkt en in welke periode. Ook relevante studiereizen worden hier vermeld.
  • Praag 1611 - 1631
    He spent his youth in Prague, where he was instructed by the Jesuits.
  • Brussel 1631-01
    Fleischer 1910, p. 14: Karl Eusebius started his 'Kavaliertour' in January 1631 under the direction of his governor Josef Gandelmo, as appears from the payment books of Liechtenstein. Fleischer begins by stating that it is, on the whole, not clear where Karl Eusebius was at what time. The only notice we have of his travels are incidental payments in the accounts. This will be indicated with 'according to payment'.
  • Parijs 1631-02 - 1631-06
    'According to payment': further notice of travels are not available, but it is very possible that he also went to England and Spain, as he would make an itinerary in the future for his own son with the 'must visit places' as he had done himself.
  • Opava (Tsjechië) 1632
    On reaching his majority he was accepted by the Silesian Estates as heir and devoted himself entirely to the management of his family's property and interests. Seen in the light of the harsh time conditions (the ravages of the thirty-year war) it is perfectly understandable that he refrained from major journeys and was more concerned with the protection of his property. This is in contrast to his predecessors and his successors, who made many and far trips.
  • Jägerndorf (Nordmähren) 1632
  • Florence 1636
