Catalogue Note

The same sitter, identified as the Bern city official Rudolf Sinner, was painted by Handmann on at least two further occasions. A near identical composition executed in pastel is in a private collection (see T. Freivogel, Emanuel Handmann 1718-1781: Ein Basler Porträtist im Bern des ausgehenden Rokoko, Bern 2002, cat. no. 270, reproduced in color).
