Title: Decent Resultion Photo - Trauerzuges des Leichman Gustav-Adolphus (Wimor / Mohr
Post by: redman on July 16, 2020, 11:28:24 AM
I'm mounting my Wimor set of the "Funeral Cortege Gustav-Adolphus" and would like to add a photo of the original painting by Schmidt that today sits in the museum in the Geleitshaus in Weissenfels, Germany.   I've searched absolutely everywhere on-line for both the picture itself and the artist (Hans Schmidt 1859-1951) but while there are others of his paintings available there is no reference whatsoever to the Gustav-Adolphus one.
The Geleitshaus Museum has very little on line and the very best that I can come up with from newspaper articles is a 25Kb photo taken at an angle (which is not much use!)..........
Anyone been to the museum and taken a good quality / high resolution photo that they could share?  Or point me in the direction of another source?

Appreciated

I would answer for myself in the same situation = best is to go and visit the Museum by yourself ...


But it is located at 650 km from Brussels, nearby Leipzig !!


So I took your picture on the net

and reworked it a little but (sorry no frame, but I can add one if wished).  Perhaps you can add a photograph to your frame.

Many thanks for photo - I'd had a go at downloading this myself, but didn't get it up to 255Kb as you have done.Anyone able to provide something in the MB range?

Be patient, please.

Update:

So, please be even more patient.
