It's one of several similar versions by Eduard von Grutzner:

On the basis of style, I'm going to say this is by Eduard von Grutzner, 
a German painter of the early 20th century.

Yes, definitely von Grutzner. Here's a link:

Alan Young, a friend of mine and an expert on visual representations of 
Shakespeare, especially of Hamlet, sent this web link along on the 
Falstaff image:

I believe the artist is Eduard von Grutzner, who produced a whole series 
of Falstaff paintings, of which this is one. The title of yours is 
Falstaff mit Handschuhen, Zinnkanne und Weinglas and it is from 1919. 
The others in the cycle were from around the same time.

Eduard von Grutzner, one of Hitler's favorite painters. He did several 
Falstaffs.

John Cox asks:

"I am seeking information about a well-known painting of Sir John 
Falstaff: who painted it, and when? The image is readily available 
online, but no one who displays it seems to identify it by date and 
painter. The URL of the Google image is

http://frmarkdwhite.files.wordpress.com/2008/11/falstaff..jpg "

The artist is Eduard von Grutzner (1846-1925):

The painting is by the German artist Eduard Von Grutzner (1846-1925) and 
was painted c1921. A favourite artist of Hitler apparently.
