    Karl Litzmann (22 January 1850 – 28 May 1936) was a German World War I general and later Nazi Party member and state politician.

    He is best known for his victory at the Battle of Łódź (1914); he earned the nickname "the Lion of Brzeziny" there. On 29 November 1914 he was awarded the "Pour le Mérite" for military bravery and Oak Leaves (signifying a second award) on 18 August 1915.

    The picture on the left is from the internet and the painting on the right is of General Litzmann from 1916. It looks like the painting might have been created from the picture and they added the Pour le Mérite to it.

    Thanks for looking and hope you enjoy!

    The painting is dated 1916, and there is little I can find on the artist. He is best known for his victory at the Battle of Łódź (1914); he earned the nickname "the Lion of Brzeziny" there. On 29 November 1914 he was awarded the "Pour le Mérite" for military bravery and Oak Leaves (signifying a second award) on 18 August 1915.

    Thanks

    Nice portrait. I believe Lodz was renamed Litzmannstadt during the war in honour of him.
