"Angels bring St.Catharina after her martyrization to the Mount Sinai" - outstanding oil painting of the famous Austrian historical and nazarene artist Baron Carl von Blaas.

This subject was very popular in the European romantic art of the 19th century. Our additional images nr.14-15 show two similar works by other artists, both painted earlier than the first version of our painting.
It is known to exist four versions of this painting. The first one was painted in 1841 in Rome and was a great success, having been sold to America.
The next version was commissioned by another American and went to Philadelphia, it's being with great probability the painting that the Austrian National Gallery purchased from an American private collection in 1962 and which is now in the Viennese "Belvedere" (see our image nr.12 with tondo version).
The third known version was commissioned by the Austrian Ambassador in Rome Count Luetzow. Its whereabout is unknown.
And finally a fourth version is mentioned (ours?), which was painted as a commission for Count Karl Erdödy. This last version was shown in 1888 in the historical section of the Vienna Jubilee Exhibition (see image nr.13 with passage from F.v.Boetticher "Malerwerke des Neunzehnten Jahrhunderts").
Besides that it has to be mentioned that to the first so successful version the artist was encouraged by the famous Nazarene painter Johann Friedrich von Overbeck, whom he had shown a first draft (see our image nr.11 with passage from C.v. Blaas' "Autobiography")

Baron Carl von Blaas (1815 Nauders/Tyrol - 1894 Vienna), father of the famous genre painter Eugen von Blaas, was a very important figure of the Austrian art history. He was a student of the Venice Academy between 1832 and 1837, travelled to Rome on a five-year-grant and there came into contact with the leading member of the Nazarenes, the German artist Overbeck and his circle. He also studied in Munich for two years and then painted comission works for churches in Paris, London, Italy, Hungary, Russia etc. From 1851 he stayed in Vienna and from 1856-1866 was a Professor of the Venice Academy. Von Blaas shared the Nazarene's fascination with Renaissance artists and identified with their religious mission of art.
