Name this painting! Here's a link to one of the best portraits ever. But who is it? Who painted it? When?

It's a parody of the 1748 Haussmann portrait of J.S. Bach.

I wonder if the parody portrait is related to Peter Schickele/P.D.Q. Bach.

Seems like the parody part is somewhat inspired by the Einstein poster with his tongue sticking out.

Hmmm...looks like Bob Hoskins to me.
