Author name: Adrian Ludwig Richter.
(1803, Dresden, Germany – 1884, Dresden, Germany). German painter, printmaker and illustrator. He ranks with Moritz von Schwind as the most important representative of late Romantic painting and printmaking in Germany. In contrast to the work of such leading masters of early Romanticism, Richter’s art was more modest in its aims, in line with the restrained intellectual climate of the Biedermeier period.
