Portrait of Franz Liszt (1839)

Henri Lehmann: Portrait of Franz Liszt
Lehmann was German-born but studied with Ingres and worked in France, eventually becoming a French citizen. He painted this portrait during a brief stay in Rome when he befriended Liszt and his lover Marie d'Agoult (he did her portrait a few years later - stay tuned).
