Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man

leave a comment »

Johan Tobias Sergel, the famous neoclassical sculptor, sometimes drew himself as an overweight drunkard. Portraits of him by others are scarce. Imagine my surprise when in a temporary exhibition I saw this charming portrait by his friend, Lorens Pasch the younger. The Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Stockholm, Sweden, owns it but keeps it normally hidden.
