Young Mozart and his Sister
Oil paintings, possibly by Pietro Antonio Lorenzoni, early 1763, commissioned
by Leopold Mozart. Mozart is six years old, his sister Nannerl twelve.
Both children are in court costumes given to them in 1762 at the Imperial
Court in Vienna. The painter executed these by first painting the surroundings
and clothing, and only then having the children pose.
