Saturday, March 16th, 2013 Mozart pictures- pictures of Mozart

Mozart Residence

“A portrait between imagination and reality”- that is the title of the special exhibition that takes currently place in the Mozart Residence.

As the title already reveals- the exhibition takes interest in the artistic portrayal of W.A. Mozart. His face is displayed on many items: posters, books, compact disks and souvenirs.  But how authentic are the pictures of Mozart? As paintings in the exhibition “Mozart pictures- pictures of Mozart” show, the paintings of Mozart after his death differ to the paintings before his death. Therefore the image we know of him was a construction after his death.

The exhibition exists of 80 exhibits, from the Salzburg Mozarteum Foundations as well as private items on loan from all over Europe.

You can visit the exhibition in the Mozart Residence until April 14th!
