I enjoy painting portraits of musicians. Mary Baldwin was blessed with talent from all over the world: China, Taiwan, Russia, Switzerland and the USA with the Summer workshop: Heifitz International Music Institute. Above is an oil sketch of Frederick the Great who was King in Prussia (1712-1786) and also a composer of marches. Note the use of candles on the music stand. This portrait is but a variation of Adolph Menzel's. 16 by 20 oil on canvas 200.00 unframed.
