a German painter. Buonaventura Genelli first took lessons from his father and then became a student of the Berlin academy. After serving his time in the guards he went with a stipend to Rome, where he lived ten years, a friend and assistant to Joseph Anton Koch, a colleague of the sculptor Ernst Hähnel, Reinhart, Overbeck and Führich, all of whom made a name in art. In 1830 he was commissioned by Dr. Härtel to adorn a villa at Leipzig with frescoes, but quarrelling with this patron he withdrew to Münich, where he earned a scanty livelihood at first, though he succeeded at last in acquiring repute as an illustrative and figure draughtsman. In 1859 he was appointed a professor at Weimar, where he died.
