A Renaissance man, the writer, composer and artist Richard Wintzer studied at the academies in Leipzig and Berlin with, among others, Paul Thumann and Franz Skarbina.  In addition to his literary and compositional work, he worked as a portraitist for the “Berliner Lokalanzeiger.”  He was close friends with Melchior Lechter.

The above drawing was subsequently reproduced as a print, probably for an illustration in a newspaper or magazine:
