Feuerbach Anselm


Born on 12 September 1829: Anselm Feuerbach, German Neoclassical painter and draftsman who died on 04 January 1880.

His family moved to Freiburg in 1836 and from 1845 tot 1848 he was a student of Wilhelm von Schadow, Johann Wilhelm Schirmer and Carl Friedrich Lessing at the Dusseldorf Academy. In 1848 he moved to Munich where he copied the old masters at the Pinakothek.

In 1850 he studied with the history painter Gustaaf Wappers at Antwerp and in 1851 and 1852 he stayed in Paris. He moved to Karlsruhe and then to Rome, where he stayed from 1856 tot 1873. In Italy he was one of the "Deutschrömers" who were looking for the perfect synthesis between humans and culture. His paintings are not as dramatic of those of Böcklin, they tend to be far more calm and cool.

In Rome he met the model Nanna Risi who became his lover. His future biographer Julius Allgeyer introduced him to Graf Adolf Friedrich von Schack, who supported Feuerbach financially. Feuerbach became a Professor at the Academy in Vienna (1873-1876). After staying in Venice and Nürnberg he died in solitary circumstances in Venice, completely neglected by his contemporaries.
