1821, Dec 141895, Jan 6
a German painter, primarily of portraits and historical subjects. In 1842, he entered the University of Königsberg, where he was an enthusiastic member of the Student Corps and produced his first lithographs. In 1849, he received the contract to paint frescoes in the south dome hall of the Neues Museum; designed by Wilhelm von Kaulbach, depicting Widukind's reconciliation with Charlemagne. This necessitated a move to Berlin and was followed by a commission to paint four scenes from the Labors of Hercules for the Altes Museum.
