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

The landscape painter Anton Faistenberger was the best known member of this Austrian family of painters.  He presumably sojourned in Italy between 1680 and 1694, probably in Venice.  He executed Italianate landscapes that were inspired by the idealized landscapes of Poussin and the heroic landscapes of Salvator Rosa, possibly mediated by contemporaries such as J. A. Eismann and J. Glauber.

At a later time, he adopted stylistic elements from Flemish and Netherlandish painters such as Rubens and J. Ruisdael.  The staffage in his paintings was mostly executed by celebrated painters such as Franz Werner von Tamm, Karl Loth, Ferdinand de Hamilton, Johann Michael Rottmayr and Martino Altomonte.  Faistenberger’s patrons included the Viennese court, the Princes of Liechtenstein and the Abbey of Heiligenkreuz in Lower Austria.
