Abstract:

Framed etched portrait of Mozart at age 7, engraved by T. Cook (1744-1818) after a work by Carmontelle-Delafosse depicting Leopold Mozart with Wolfgang and Maria Anna (Paris, 1763). It is captioned in French and includes an epigraph from Homer's Hymn on Mercury in Greek below. This engraving was reproduced in Daines Barrington's Miscellanies (London, 1781) accompanying an essay entitled, "Account of a very remarkable young musician." Daines Barrington (1727-1800) was an English lawyer, antiquary, and naturalist. His account of Mozart was originally printed in The Royal Society of London's Philosophical transactions, vol. 60, 1770. Barrington records how he tested Wolfgang's sight-reading and improvisatory powers and found them to be quite extraordinary.
