After over 100 years we are able to publish these rare and exquisite plates by one of Germany’s best artists of the early 20th Century. Maximillian II Emmanuel was one of the premier military leaders of his time. He was often referred to as the "Blue King" because he nearly always wore his favorite color, blue. His well trained and drilled Bavarian army was likewise clad in their famous medium blue uniforms. A color which was worn by Bavarian soldiers over the next two centuries. In addition to being a great military leader in battles of the War of Spanish Succession and helping thwart the Turkish invasion of Europe Maximillian II Emmanuel was a pioneer patron of Baroque art and architecture.
