Frederick Barbarossa, also known as Frederick I, was the Holy Roman Emperor from 1155 until his death 35 years later. He was named Barbarossa by the northern Italian cities which he attempted to rule: in German, he was known as Kaiser Rothbart, which has the same meaning.
Historians consider him among the Holy Roman Empire's greatest medieval emperors. He combined qualities that made him appear almost superhuman to his contemporaries:
his longevity, his ambition, his extraordinary skills at organization, his battlefield acumen and his political perspicacity.
The base of this artwork is a print by U. von Heyden from the late 19th century.
Antonio Wehrli mounted this antique print onto a 5mm MDF plate. He then painted his signature style gravity flow over it to increase depth and beauty, thus creating a new conceptual artwork.
Signed, dated and titled on verso by the artist Antonio Wehrli.
