New portrait of Mozart discoveredMikey 4 comments
A portrait has been discovered which gives a better indication of the composer's appearance when he was alive. The new portrait (shown below on the right) shows Mozart in 1783 at age 27.
Up until now the most recognisable portrait of Mozart (shown below left) was painted by Barbara Kraft from memory 18 years after his death. I might add that neither the old portrait or the new one resemble the Mozart statue I have in my den. I wonder if I can get a refund :-)
