Thematic depictions

To show Beethoven in a biographical context or present him as a heroic and supertemporal human being, are typical examples of the romantic reverence extended to the composer.

Many visual artists added quotes and references to their Beethoven depictions, thereby emphasising his relevance as an outstanding composer. Artists who turned Beethoven's music into pictures took one step more.
