Portrait of Mozart

Portrait of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart [1756-1791] by Joseph Hickel [1736-1807]

 

'As for the beautiful red coat, which attracts me enormously... I must have a coat like that, for it is one that will really do justice to certain buttons which I have long been hankering after. They are mother-of-pearl with a few white stones around the edge and a fine yellow stone in the center. I should like all my things to be of good quality, genuine and beautiful.' Letter from Mozart to Martha Elisabeth von Waldstätten [Vienna, September 28, 1782]
