Carl Ernst von Stetten, by Gustave Courtois, circa 1878



Carl Ernst von Stetten (7 March 1857, Augsburg – 1942), Bavarian artist.  He went to Paris in the 1870s for training, and there met Courtois and Dagnan-Bouveret at the studio of Gérôme; it was for Courtois and Stetten the beginning of a lifelong friendship.  The young Stetten posed for several portraits and was a model for works by his friend (and probable lover).
