The article focuses on the portraiture pieces of Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach in 18th century, which depicts musicians, composers and poets. It mentions that Bach believes in the relatedness of paintings and music. He asserts that in making a realistic character, it should depict an affection and passion. This was the theory believed by sketch artist Andrea Stöttr ö p who makes the L' Aly Rupalich by Bach as an example, though mostly criticized because of its contrasting theme.
