INGRES, Jean-Auguste-Dominique
(b. 1780, Montauban, d. 1867, Paris)

Double Portrait of Otto Magnus von Stackelberg and Jacob Linckh

Graphite, 194 x 144 mm
Musée Jenisch, Vevey

The tiny drawing represents Count Otto Magnus Baron von Stackelberg, one of the first archaeologists, and also a writer, painter and art historian, born in Tallinn (on the right), and probably Jakob Linckh, a German painter and archaeologist. Both young men were at the age of 31 at the time Ingres had sketched them.
