Group Description

TheFaceOfBach list is a forum for those of us who are interested in the vexing problems surrounding the various portraits of Johann Sebastian Bach. Lively discussion and exchange of information regarding the provenance of the various pictures and the particular problems pertaining to them is encouraged, and I fervently hope that the list will become the center for the exchange of information and the results of researches into various facets of the histories of the images and the validity of the various images as accurate and authentic depictions of the face of Johann Sebastian Bach.

I also shall use the list to notify the members of updates to the web pages that I have devoted to the recently located and identified portrait from life of Johann Sebastian Bach that is the long lost painting that was once in the possession of Johann Christian Kittel.

The URL for those pages is: http://www.npj.com/thefaceofbach/

The list was established and the announcement of the discovery of the portrait of Bach that belonged to Kittel was officially made on July 31, 2000, the 250th anniversary of the interment of Bach's mortal remains. Kittel, who was one of Bach's last pupils, was at the cemetery with the family and friends.
