Actually, it looks like it's from the time period he got in a fight (during his heavy drinking days) and he would go on stage with crutches.
this was on the inlay of Rant in E Minor, his last work before he died! You can see how much weight he lost
that's a good picture.
I think he looks good in this pic.
this has 2 have been taken towards the end. i think it should be taken down, he wouldnt have wanted people to have seen this.
