This lifelike painting from Gustaf Cederström portrays the royal hero's return to Sweden following a fatal shot at the Siege of Fredriksten in Norway in 1718. Cederström was so intent on capturing the image as realistically as possible that he enlisted professional models, colleagues, friends and relatives to pose for him to ensure each soldier had a definitive individual look. For the King himself, he even erected a stretcher, getting a professional model to lie on it to create the scene as accurately as possible.
Usage: Generally, we find tailors prefer to work with two panels of a single painting per jacket in order to line up the image along the back seam. For full details on how best to use our linings, click here: Linings FAQ.
