New Portrait

Yesterday, Grand Duke Jean unveiled a new portrait of Grand Duchess Josephine-Charlotte. Judging by the pictures, it is not merely a painting. It appears that the portrait was carved into wood then painted. An admirable display of talent from the artist, Stephan Balkenhol

The portrait is displayed beside an 
similar image of Grand Duke Jean. Both works of art will remain on permanent display at the MUDAM. The portrait was commissioned to mark the 90th birthday of Grand Duke Jean.&
