Aquatint engraving of the composer by Franz Hegi (1774-1850). Ludwig van Beethoven in Erlengebüsch bei Wien
1834. 200 x 170 mm. Beethoven is depicted in a bucolic setting reclining on the banks of a stream surrounded by woods, a sheet of manuscript music in his left hand, a pen in his right; a woman stands in the background surrounded by a flock of sheep with a village in the distance. A fine impression on wove paper, without letters.. Appenzeller: Der Kupfersticher Franz Hegi von Zurich: Sein Leben und seine Werke, 1098. The present image perhaps alludes to the composition of Beethoven's 6th Symphony, the "Pastoral." Another version of this print was published in the Zürich Musikgesellschaft Almanac of 1834 (see Comini: The Changing Image of Beethoven: A Study in Mythmaking, figure 51).
