Biography   Adolf Senff


Adolf Senff began as a theologian in Leipzig before he worked as a tutor for the children and the pupil of the painter Gerhard von Kügelgen (1772- 1820).  In Leipzig, he worked as a painter and portraitist in the years 1813-14.   He turned to art and painting after the war against France, in which he participated as a volunteer.
