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

The following information was compiled and submitted by Ed Horan:
 
Defregger started his art career somewhat later in his life, beginning his training as a painter and that was in 1861.  In Munich he was taken on as a student by Carl von Piloty.  Starting 1878 he was professor at the academy in Munich.  Defregger transformed Piloty's realistic style of history painting into one which was more genre-like.  Thematically he showed a preference for tyrolese history (showing 500 of 2850 characters).
