a German etcher and painter, primarily of landscapes. Primavesi was born in Heidelberg. In 1812 he became a theatrical painter in Mannheim. He was dissatisfied with the artistic possibilities offered there, however, so moved to the royal theatre in Darmstadt. Though well paid, his finances deteriorated; from 1815 he split work with another painter, Sandhaas, and in 1817 he suffered a fire at his house. During this period he took up a correspondence with Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. However his fortunes were restored in 1822, as he was appointed to a secure position as court painter in Kassel, where he remained until his death in 1855.
