1666, Nov 271742
a battle and military genre painter and engraver born in the Free Imperial City of Augsburg in what is now Bavaria, Germany. During the siege and pillage of Augsburg in 1703, he exposed himself to great danger by drawing, in the midst of the engagements, the scenes around him. The six etchings resulting from this are perhaps the most meritorious part of his work. His oil paintings may best be studied in the Brunswick Gallery, which contains nine battle pieces by him.
