Portrait of a Lady with a Bonnet

Jan Jakub Quirin Jahn

Jan Jakub Quirin Jahn - Portrait of a Lady with a Bonnet
One of the rare extant portraits by this artist. Its sober expression and colours bespeak a typical informal concept of Classicist painting at the time of Joseph II. Similarly as Jahn's altar-pieces, frescoes, drawings and graphics, this portrait does not exceed the average quality of contemporaneous late academic art that came from Rome. More important than Jahn's paintings were his writings, a valuable contribution to the emerging historiography of Czech art.
