Portrait of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart , c. 1780
Oil on canvas, 19 1/2 x 14 inches

Considered by many Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lovers to be the most regal image of Mozart in his prime, this portrait has been authenticated by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart expert Cliff Eisen in March 2008 and has enjoyed immense popularity ever since. This serene and powerful likeness gives insight into Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart during his golden years in Vienna, when his popularity was at its peak. It is connected to the Hagenauer-Locatelli family, close friends and landlords of the Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart family. Joseph Hickle, a Vienna court artist rumored to have painted over 3000 personages, is the presumed artist, though some art historians feel that it was painted within his school. The portrait has gained a great deal of popularity since its discovery and was exhibited in Milan, Italy at the historic La Scala in 2009. Articles on the portrait have appeared in more than 200 newspapers and art magazines, including Apollo, the New York Times, BBC, Washington Post and The international Herald Tribune.
