Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Andreas Achenbach was a German landscape painter, associated with the Dusseldorf School of painting. Born at Kassel, he began his art education in 1827 in Dusseldorf under Friedrich Wilhelm Schadow at the Dusseldorf Academy of Painting*. He studied at St. Petersburg and traveled in Italy, Holland and Scandinavia.

In his early work he followed the pseudo-idealism of the German romantic school, but on removing to Munich in 1835, the stronger influence of Louis Gurlitt turned his talent into (showing 500 of 1639 characters).
