Self-portrait, Johann Friedrich August Tischbein, 1782

Self-portrait, Johann Friedrich August Tischbein, 1782

oil on canvas, h 46cm × w 38cm. More details

Tischbein came from a German family of artists and was called the ‘Dutch Tischbein’. This was not only because he was born in Maastricht and spent his childhood in The Hague, but also because he portrayed the stadtholder’s family in the 1780s, as can be seen in this gallery. His elegant likenesses were universally admired.
