A Newly-Discovered Portrait of Mozart.


Through the kindness of Mr. Henry E. Krehbiel, of New York City, we are enabled to give a reproduc­tion of a portrait of Mozart which was not known to exist. Mr. Krehbiel found the portrait in Paris, in the summer of 1900, in the collection of M. Catusse, French minister to Sweden. A label, evidently at­tached to it on the occasion of a public exhibition long ago, credited it with being a portrait of Necker, a famous French minister of finance. There are no points of resemblance, however, between this picture and any authoritative portrait of Necker, while the resemblance to the well-known Tischbein portrait of Mozart is very pronounced. Moreover the view from the window represents Mozart’s birthplace, Salzburg.
