This is a portrait painting of Constanze Mozart, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's widow, about 11 years after his death. In the portrait she is holding a book of Mozart's music.
At the time of this portrait Constanze had remarried to  Georg Nikolaus von Nissen, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Nikolaus_von_Nissen
a Danish diplomat and writer, and the two wrote a biography of Mozart. He was reputed to be a good stepfather to Mozart's sons. He did pass away before the biography of Mozart was done, and getting it competed was a difficult process.

Below that is a screen shot is a closeup detail of the painting.
I like the closeup, to me it shows the love of life and the strength of this woman. She overcame the dire straits she found herself in, after the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. She did a good job of overcoming poverty making a good life for herself and her two boys, and made a good second marriage several years later.  Costanze herself, was a trained musician and an accomplished singer. She had some influence on Mozart's music and career.

Constanze married the Danish diplomat. They would move to Denmark eventually:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georg_Nikolaus_von_Nissen

Portrait of the painter Hans Hansen by Christian Horneman (1804)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Hansen_(portrait_painter)

Hansen was born at Skelby in Næstved Municipality, Denmark. Hansen's father worked in the War Chancellery and later became a farm manager. When he displayed some artistic ability, he won the support of Carl Adolph von Plessen, a court chamberlain, which enabled him to enroll at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. While there, he won silver medals in 1789 and 1791. According to his diaries from this period, he took Jens Juel as his model.

From 1793 to 1797, he travelled as an itinerant portrait painter in Jutland and Funen, then received more financial support from Plessen, allowing him to visit Hamburg and Vienna to continue his studies. He was awarded funding from the Fonden ad usus publicos, a fund first established in 1765 by King Frederick V to support artistic and scientific endeavors. Shortly after. he was able to study briefly in Rome, then he went back to Vienna.

After returning to Copenhagen, he became a candidate for membership in the Royal Academy and a full member in 1809. His attempts to become a Professor were unsuccessful, but he became an Artist in Residence at Charlottenborg Palace in 1815. From 1817 to 1825, he was a lecturer at the Academy, where he taught perspective and mathematics. In his last years, he spent most of his time restoring old portraits at Frederiksborg Palace.

He is best known for his portraits of the Mozart family, painted during his second stay in Vienna: Constanze Mozart and a double portrait of her sons, Karl Thomas and Franz Xaver, which are currently on display in Salzburg.

He met his future wife, Jørgine Henriette Lie (born 1778), while painting Constanze Mozart, widow of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756–1791), who was then married to the Danish diplomat, Georg Nikolaus von Nissen (1761–1826). They were married in 1803 and had a son, Constantin Hansen (1804–1880), named after Constanze, who stood as his godparent. He also became a well-known painter.

Hansen's other portrait sitters include Eline Heger, Christian Ditlev Frederik Reventlow, Anders Sandøe Ørsted, C. A. Lorentzen, Adam Wilhelm Moltke, Andreas Hallander, Princess Vilhelmine Marie, Friederich Münter and King Frederick VI.

Hansen and his wife died of typhus within a month of each other. They are buried at Garnisons Cemetery in Copenhagen.

Note the hair styling of Constanze--it is not all that different from what one could see today, approximately 200 years later.

Well, all these years sort of wondered how Constanze and the boys fared after the death of Wolfgang Amadeus  Mozart... ??? Funny how I never really looked it up... or maybe I forgot what I had learned about that.
Anyway I sort of get a kick out of how much of a survivor Constanze was. I see that true grit in her eyes. That's how I see it. I am happy she made a good living and a good second marriage to a kind man, he was reputed to be a kind, loving father figure to Mozart's two adorable boys... He looks very stiff and proper in his portrait but he was known to be a good man... They all settled in Denmark... He tried very hard to complete the biography of Mozart, working with Constanze on it, but sadly he passed away about 60 years old...
