Life of CARL SPITZWEG


 Advertisements

 
  German painter and graphic artist, active in his native Munich. He began his career as a pharmacist, and turned fairly late to art, first as a newspaper caricaturist, then as a painter. Although he travelled widely (England, France, Italy, and elsewhere), he was provincial in his choice of subjects and is an outstanding representative of the Biedermeier style. His pictures are generally small, humorous in content, and full of lovingly depicted anecdotal detail {The Poor Poet, Neue Pinakothek, Munich, 1839, and other versions). He also painted excellent landscapes that show a debt to the Barbizon School.
