Biography Frederik Michael Fabritius Tengnagel
Frederik Michael Ernst Fabritius de Tengnagel was born in Vejlevgaard, Fünen in 1781. Not until the age of 30 years he decided to become an artist and took private painting lessons with J. P. Moller. Of great importance for his art was the work of the Norwegian landscape painter of Romanticism Johan Christian Dahl, yet Tengnagel copied some of his motifs.
He specialized himself in painting winter landscapes and was a very respected and successful painter even in his own lifetime. He died in 1849. (hth)
