Life of MORITZ VON SCHWIND


 Advertisements

 
  Austrian painter, graphic artist, and designer, trained in Vienna and in Munich under Cornelius. Schwind represents the tail-end of Germanic Romanticism and his most characteristic works depict an idealized fairy-tale Middle Ages, with knights in armour, damsels in distress, enchanted woods and castles, and much loving depiction of costume, architecture, etc. He was at his best working on a small scale, as in his numerous book illustrations and his woodcuts for Fliegende Blotter, a humorous Munich periodical. In his young days Schwind, who was an accomplished violinist, had been friendly with Franz Schubert and late in his own life he depicted Schubert s Vienna circle in a number of drawings.
