The fifth child of J.S. Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714–1788) was a highly influential composer whose music made a big impact on the period between his father's Baroque style and the Classical and Romantic styles that followed. Mozart said of him, ‘He is the father, we are the children.’
C.P.E. Bach was married to Johanna Maria Dannemann in 1744. Only three of their children lived to adulthood. None of them became musicians. One of them - Johann Sebastian Bach "the Younger" was a promising painter, but he died in his late 20s during a visit to Italy. Pictures is one of his artworks, 'Shepherds bathing in a forest'.
