Birth: May 10, 1754
Death: May 25, 1798

Danish-German painter born in Schleswig, who in 1776 went to Copenhagen to study. In 1783 he went to Italy, where he was much impressed by the work of Giulio Romano. He then settled in Lübeck, Germany, as a portrait painter, but was helped to visit Rome again in 1792, and gradually produced some fine subject and historical paintings, e.g. "Platos Symposium" and the Battle of Rossbach which made him famous. He was appointed professor at Berlin, and in 1795 a great exhibition of his works was held in Rome, where he died in 1798. He ranks as the founder of the later school of German historical painting.
