Portrait of Johann Sebastian Bach
[The portrait of Johann Sebastian Bach depicted is by Elias Gottlob Haussmann (1695-1774). It is a copy by the painter of the version he created originally in 1746, and it dates from 1748.  Until 2015, this 'second' portrait was in the private collection of Dr. William H. Scheide of Princeton, NJ, USA, when after his death, it was returned to the city of Leipzig and is in the Bach-Archiv.
