Johann Baptist Kirner
Two-part tracing (A) on the Freiburg fortune-teller woman, vor 1846
About the object
There are two extant tracings for the painting Die Kartenschlägerin (The Fortune-Teller) that record the outlines of the overall composition. This one is a little more detailed and largely corresponds to the composition of the Freiburg painting. Incidental details, such as the young farmer's watch chain and the riding crop leaning against the chair back, are the only items missing.
