Bach in Arts - Bach Portrait

B-19

Type:

Bach Engraving

Title:

Engraving after “Gebel”

Description:

Published c1798 as a single sheet, probably by Breitkopf & Härtel. The indication of the original “Gebel pinx Leipzig” must refer to Emanuel Traugott Goebel. In 1850 Hilgenfeldt named the engraver as Friedrich Wilhelm Bollinger, who apart from engraving the Haussmann portrait of 1746 (cf. B-35) also “made an etching in duodecimo from Geber's [sic] painting, most excellently done despite its smallness”. This unknown painting by Goebel, which curiously enough Hilgenfeldt suggests may be the Bach picture in the Joachimsthalschen Gymnasium (B-12), was the model for numerous engravings and lithographs (cf. B-21, B-22, B-23, B-24, B-25, B-26 and B-39).

Measures:

13.5 X 9.5 cm

Creator:

Original: Emanuel Traugott Goebel (1751-1813), a pupil of Anton Graff’s who worked as a portrait painter in Dresden and Leipzig, where there is evidence of his activity around 1780.
Engraver: Friedrich Wilhelm Bollinger (1777-1825)
Published: c1798 as a single sheet, probably by Breitkopf & Härtel.
