Charlotte Moscheles in Munich - at the end of 1844

from Recent Music and Musicians, pages 303-304:

The artist's atelier consists of several rooms. In one, the largest, he is just now painting his great picture of ' The Destruction of Jerusalem.' It is nearly finished, and we so delight in watching the great artist putting the final touches to this masterpiece. In an adjoining room stands the piano; there Moscheles was playing away to his heart's content, when suddenly King Louis, who is quite at home in any artist's studio, and more especially in Kaulbach's, walks in. With ready wit, he says,' Ah! came to see one artist and find two!'
