Wilhelm Richter (1824 Vienna - 1892)
Wilhelm Richter specialized in genre, hunting and military depictions. He studied at the Vienna Academy with the painters Leopold Kupelwieser, and Johann Nepomuk Ender. In 1848/49, he worked as war painter during a campaign in northern Italy, as well during a campaign in 1859.
In the 1870s, Wilhelm Richter often went to the Imperial hunting lodge in Gödöllö near Budapest. There, he primarily painted hunting pieces. Today, several of his paintings are on display in the Military History Museum in Vienna. They illustrate those campaigns that Richter witnessed as a war painter.
