Biography Paul von Franken
Franken, a genre and landscape painter, was born in 1819 in Oberbachem
near Godesberg. His family had used the aristocratic name 'von Franken'
illegitimately since 1826, and despite a Cologne judge banning the use
of this title, Paul von Franken continued to sign documents and
paintings with this dignified suffix. He trained at the Dusseldorf
Academy of Arts, and spent the period from 1842 to 1845 in Brussels and
Antwerp, and exhibited at the Dresden Academy in 1846. Later he worked
as a teacher, and met his Latvian wife Helene Korber.
