Austrian Painter, 1724-1796
Austrian painter. His work as a painter of both oil paintings and frescoes on religious, mythological and occasionally worldly themes spanned the second half of the 18th century, adapting a Late Baroque training to the onset of Neo-classicism but remaining strikingly individual throughout. His fresco work, mostly still in situ in widespread central European locations, came at the end of an artistic tradition and was for long neglected, being far from major cultural centres; but it is now seen to establish him as one of the leading painters of his century Related Paintings of MAULBERTSCH, Franz Anton :. | Annunciation | Decoration of the Cupola | Apotheosis of a Hungarian Saint | Interior of the Church sg | Adoration of the Shepherds |
