Abstract This paper examines the historical signatures of 18th century composer, J. S. Bach, to evaluate the effects of vision impairment on handwritten signatures. It is questioned whether Bach penned certain signatures as it is historically documented that he was virtually blind in the years just prior to his death in 1750. Applying information collected from published forensic studies about the effects of vision impairment on handwriting, handwriting indices of vision impairment are compared to Bach's signatures in the late 1740s.
