Mozart, (Wolfgang Amadeus). Portrait.

London, 1817.

Half-length figure within an oval, in profile to right. Coloured stipple engraving by John Chapman, from "Encyclopaedia Londinensis", 1817. Platten measurements 162 x 114 mm, leaf size 275:210 mm.


The blank margins show some age toning, otherwise well preserved. The portrait has recently become the focus of scholarly debate; cf. the article by Peter Kothe, "Wie 'echt' ist John Chapman's Mozart-Porträt? Betrachtungen zu einem englischen Kupferstich des Jahres 1817" (in: Mitteilungen der Internationalen Stiftung Mozarteum 33).
