Mozart’s Birthday 1/27/1756

W.A. Mozart 16

pen, brush & inks on linen paper.

“Mozart, widely recognized as one of the greatest composers in the history of Western music. With Haydn and Beethoven he brought to its height the achievement of the Viennese Classical school. Unlike any other composer in musical history, he wrote in all the musical genres of his day and excelled in every one. His taste, his command of form, and his range of expression have made him seem the most universal of all composers; yet, it may also be said that his music was written to accommodate the specific tastes of particular audiences”

One of three portraits I did in honor of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It was created in a somewhat “period” style. It shows the Maestro in his later years. This painting was featured in “Performing Arts” magazine. It was also exhibited during a series of concerts by the La Jolla Chamber Music Society’s season in Shewood Hall at the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary Art.

  1. Ed –

    I really like this style/technique!

    Being an editor, I couldn’t help noticing a typo: Museum of Contemporary Art

    in case you want to fix it. But everyone will know what you mean anyway.

    Cheers, Linnea

  2. Linnea,

    Thank you, it was inked with a very fine tip pen. I’ve been using a variety of new pens (Faber Castell, Sakura & Pentel) for the line work in a new series, very exciting with a smoother line. Yes, Thank you I did update the typo, you’re always a wonderful editor!
