Self Portrait

Margarethe Geiger, 1804

The self-portrait of 21-year old Margarethe Geiger was created in Würzburg, where the painter from Schweinfurt was taking lessons from court painter Christoph Fesel. However, she was hardly able to develop her talent any further as she died at just 26 years of age.
