Anton Burger (1824-1905)
Anton Burger was born in Frankfurt in 1824. From 1842 to 1846 he studied
at the Städel Art Institute. At the urging of his teacher Philipp Veit
he left for Munich but returned to Frankfurt two years later. In 1853 he
undertook a study trip to Paris, where he met Camille Corot and Gustave
Courbet. Together with Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann he founded the
Kronberg painters’ colony in 1861. Burger primarily painted landscapes
but also portraits and genre paintings as well as etchings. He was
highly respected and was appreciatively named the ‘King of Kronberg’.
His works were sought after, even abroad, and he was honored with
numerous awards. (cbo)
