Gottlieb Friedrich Bach [76] (Musician)

Born: September 10, 1714 - Meiningen, Germany
Died: February 25, 1785 - Meiningen, Germany

Gottlieb Friedrich Bach [76] was son of Johann Ludwig Bach [3/72]. He was court organist and cabinet painter (Kabinettsmaler) in Meiningen.

Karl Bernhard Paul Bach of Munich has declared that one of J.S. Bach's potraits (B-08: Meiningen pastel) was the work of his great-grandfather, Gottlieb Friedrich Bach, and presumably painted when Gottlieb Friedrich visited Leipzig, where his brother Samuel Anton (1713-1781) went to study in May 1732 and was a frequent guest in Johann Sebastian’s house. It may have been left there as a present, and bequeathed to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, in which case it can be identified as the pastel the latter is known to have owned. Finally it may have returned to Meiningen and been directly inherited by Paul Bach.
