1802, Nov 41866, Oct 6
a German mural painter and portraitist, a pupil of Peter Cornelius. He spent much of the later part of his career in England. In 1847 he moved to England, where he painted portraits, interiors, and a few decorative schemes, including one for Lord Ellesmere, at Bridgewater House, London, where he not only executed the paintings, but also designed the stucco architectural settings. The result provoked the displeasure of the house's architect, Charles Barry. He is also recorded as having painted a series of works on subjects from Dante's Divine Comedy for a Mr Morrison and later carried out a commission for set of four panels illustrating "The Ballad of Chevy Chase" for the guard room at Alnwick Castle.
