The Mozart Family

The portrait dates from 1780/1781: Mozart was 24 years old and Nannerl four years older. Johann Nepomuk della Croce is the painter. Nannerl and Wolfgang are playing a piano duet—perhaps one of Mozart's 4-hand piano sonatas; Mama Maria Anna has passed on, and thus appears in a portrait on the wall; Papa Leopold, with violin in hand, perhaps is thinking about his Treatise on Violin Playing.
