What did Anna Magdalena Bach look like?

In a catalogue of portraits, printed in 1790, we find: “Bach, (Anna Magd.) Sopranistin, J.S. zweyte Frau. In Oel gemahlt von Cristofori. 2 Fuß, 1 Zoll hoch, 23 Zoll breit. In goldenen Rahmen“ – “Bach, (Anna Magd.) Soprano, J.S. second wife. Painted in oil by Cristofori. 2 feet 1 inch high, 23 inches wide. In a gold frame.”
