In 1846, Wodick returned to Magdeburg, where he also established himself as a sought-after portrait painter of numerous personalities of rank and name from politics, economy, science, and culture. In 1862, even Prussian King Wilhelm I personally posed for him. Oil on canvas; Signed and dated 1869. 110 cm x 86 cm. Original frame.
