Isabella Mikulicz-Breyer (Prague 1887-1973 Vienna)

Portrait of Prof. Alfred Cossmann at age 60

1930

pencil on firm paper

17 × 12 cm 

lower right in signed by the artist: "Mikulicz"

below signed by the sitter: "Alf. Coßmann"


upper left and right corners, respectively, inscribed in pencil in another hand (probably the editorial staff of a newspaper): "Donnerstag" ["Thursday"] and "Tgblt" [presumably an abbreviation for "Tageblatt" or "Daily Newspaper"]


verso inscribed and dated: "2. Okt 1930  60 Jahre" etc.


It would appear that this drawing was created for publication as an illustration in a daily newspaper, perhaps in Vienna where Cossmann and Mikulicz both resided.
