On this page we will try to gather the various photographs, illustrations, and portraits of Gottschalk. For a 19th century artist, there are quite a lot. When he was on tour, girls tried to get autographed photos of their idol in the same way as today's stars.

Portraits

  


Sur cette page, nous allons essayer de rassembler les diverses photos, illustrations, et portraits existant. Lorsque Gottschalk était en tournée, ses fans essayaient de récupérer des photos dédicacées de leur idole de la même façon que nos stars actuelles. Les illustrations quant à elles et les caricatures ont généralement eu pour but de montrer les manières mais aussi la virtuosité de Gottschalk.


Caricatures - Illustrations


Illustrations and caricatures were  generally  drawn   to show the manners but also  the virtuosity of Gottschalk.

Those shown here are mainly from the   book of Francisco   Curt Lange, "Vida Y Muerte de Louis Moreau Gottschalk en Rio de Janeiro. Many others are certainly still hidden in South   American newspapers.

Portraits


Gottschalk was   photographed many times. The majority of sources comes from the United States for the years 1853,  1855-1857, 1862-1865 and from Brazil for 1869.

Youth - (1845-1853)

Gottschalk started his fame in 1849 when Escudier published la Bamboula. Le Bananier followed  thereafter and was a huge success. The first portrait dates from this era. After his european triumphs, Gottschalk is firmly awaited in New York where he lands in 1853. To make american people familiar with this glorious compatriot, several portraits are realised this year. The success is unfortunately not as expected. Hence, after a quite financially catastrophic year, Gottschalk sails for Havana in february 1854.

American Tour (1861-1865)

After a few months in Cuba, Gottschalk returns to New York in 1855. It is probably from that time that he will have a mustache. First thin and sharp-ended, it will thicken over the years. Despite the triumphs of the joint concerts with Thalberg in 1856, we found very few pictures for the years 1855-1860. Indeed, according to several sources of photos (to be considered with care), Gottschalk seems to have been more portrayed after returning from the Caribbean early 1862.

 

From that date and for his last return to North America, Gottschalk shows off everywhere his big gold medal. He received many from his admirers : from his New Orleans fellows in 1853, his friends in San Francisco in 1865, in Lima, Montevideo and Buenos Aires in 1868 ... He will also have numerous decorations as pins, medallions ... Just for Spain, he is Knight of the Order of Charles III, of Isabella the catholic, of the Order of the Lion of Limburg. 

 

We tried to classify the following pictures in chronological order.

Last years (1866-1869)

The portraits corresponding to the end of Gottschalk's life show a puffed-up face. He still proudly displays all his medals.
