About the Work

The son of the Salzburg mint master Johann Thenn is portrayed here in three-quarter profile. Wolf Thenn is about seven to ten years old and has adopted the role of a young scholar. His right arm is bent and his thumb splayed as he grasps the seam of his gown. The boy's costume is elaborate, and a black cap with a small peak and extended neck protector covers most of his hair. The landscape in the background begins with a grassy slope. Behind it flows a wide river on which a sailing boat can be seen. Beyond the river bank, our gaze falls on a snowy Alpine mountain chain beneath a bright blue sky.
