3. "Music" by Henri Matisse

10. "Das Flötenkonzert Friedrich des Großen in Sanssouci" by Adolph Menzel (the harpsichordist is Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Franz Benda is in the background, the man usually standing on the very right site is Johann Joachim Quantz, but somehow he was cut away - there he is

(Note his bittersweet mien - here you can see them close up if you hover with your cursor over the figures.)

I've seen 2, 5 & 7, but can't remember.

Though apparently not the greatest painting ever, it's worth to take a second look on it musicalwise: Menzel painted loads of images glorifying Friedrich II, all long after Friedrich's death in the middle of the 19th century: crowning ceremonies, funerals, battles. This one is a bit different - see how cheesed-off CPE Bach looks up, or how bored the audience is (one is even looking up). Or Danza's annoyed face towards Friedrich. Or the way Quantz (his mentor) is standing in a not that ceremonial way and a bitter-sweet face. And then as a contrast Friedrich's utter amateurish staring in the notes, his concentration like someone who tries hard to count during playing. He can't see the reactions anyway, is stand is far too high. Makes it to a fairly funny image almost a caricature.
