Default More than just a puzzle

My son sent me the attached image. At first, I thought it might be hexadecimal. It is not. The statue on the stairs, I do not recognize. A similar image is in the mirror. A faint female facial image is visible on the chair-back. There is probably more. Anyone...

Answer is 521

I think it was pretty obvious.

Obvious, not to me. Would you care to elaborate how you came up with 521?

If I had to shoot in the dark, I'd go for Johann Sebastian Bach. If that is wrong, I'm quite sure it is a person from the same epoch (because of the wig).
