A remarkable discovery at Lake Thun: New images of the MOZART child prodigies?

    Langenthal (ots) - In a hotel by the side of Lake Thun the Maggini-Foundation, of Langenthal in Switzerland, has discovered two previously unknown Mozart pictures - a rare double miniature painted on ivory.

    Wolfgang is portrayed on one side, seated, and his sister Nannerl (Marianna) on the other.

    The two children were both painted in water-colour (Guoache) by the same unknown but highly accomplished artist c. 1768.
