This book is a biography about the famous music composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I liked reading it for the information it gives and the accurate telling of his life.

The painter of the cover portrait of Mozart is unnamed. Who did it? I have checked all portraits of Mozart on google and not found this one.
