Biography Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller
Ferdinand Georg Waldmuller (Vienna, 1793 - Hinterbrühl, 1865) was an
important Austrian portrait, genre and landscape painter of the
Biedermeier period, 1814-1848. Waldmüller was particularly admired for
his landscape, which exemplify his belief that art should be based on a

Waldmüller is regarded as being far ahead of his time.

drawing to the children of Count Gyulay in Croat
