1800, Apr 81885, Apr 29
a German painter and an art critic, author of a number of elaborate and important works bearing on the history of art in Germany and Italy. He was born in Saaleplatte, and initially studied theology and philosophy, but soon devoted himself to art, entering the studio of Peter von Cornelius at Munich. He was employed in painting the frescoes in the Aula at the University of Bonn, and those of the Glyptothek and the arcades at Munich, but his reputation rests chiefly on his discovery of several ancient pictures, and on his works on the history of art. His greatest discovery was the frescoes of Jacopo d'Avanzi, which date as far back as 1376, in the Chapel of San Giorgio at Padua.
