A new portrait of Mozart
A newly-found portrait of Mozart has been confirmed to be genuine. Another article here, among many others on the topic. What do you think of the new portrait, which I have inserted here? I always thought Mozart looked very common for a genius, in most of the pictures of him (usually painted posthumously, from what I read)but there is something in this portrait's eyes that seems...accurate (I cannot find a better word). Maybe I am imagining things, but he looks remarquably intelligent there.
