Biography Friedrich Heimerdinger
Born in Altona, Friedrich Heimerdinger studied at the Academy of Arts in
Düsseldorf under Theodor Hildebrandt (1804-1874), who was a
representative of the Düsseldorf School. From 1842 to 1845, he continued
his studies at the Academy in Munich. Heimerdinger then established a
drawing school for painters and sculptors in Hamburg. His artistic
approach of drawing from real models later became a usual practice at
German art schools. Heimerdinger was specialized in animal and still
life paintings that were very popular due to their trompe l'oeil effect.
Examples of his works were exhibited, for instance, at the Glaspalast
in Munich in 1889. (cbo)
