The portrait of king Albert I (left) is based on an original photograph by Belgian photographer Eugène Boute (1910). Boute took the first official photographs of King Albert and Queen Elisabeth after the death of King Leopold II in 1909. These photographs were widely distributed as official portraits of the King and Queen. The portrait shown here was also published in 'King Albert's Book' (1914).
