|Gladstone Dessert Service|
Count Georg Holtzendorff (also spelled Holzendorff) was a painter of Saxony, specialist in landscapes, figure subjects and cherubs, who sought refuge in England in consequence of the Franco-Prussian War.
His main work was the decoration of the Gladstone Dessert Service, presented by the Liberal Working Men of Derby to Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone in 1883. A watercolor by Holtzendorff (c. 1882), with a view of Becket Street, Derby, with the Derby Museum and Art Gallery in the background, is the only remaining study on paper linked to the Gladstone service.
