Emil Hünten's Preliminaries

Emil Johann Hünten (1827 - 1902) was a German military painter who studied in Paris and Düsseldorf.

He produced his oil canvases only after careful preliminary study from life.

Those studies were typically made from costumed models in three different media: 1) Oil studies... 

2) Watercolor studies

and 3) Tone paper with pencil and gouache. He probably also used lay figures and maquettes.
