Andreas Achenbach

Andreas Achenbach was a German landscape painter, associated with the Dusseldorf School of painting. Born at Kassel, he began his art education in 1827 in Dusseldorf under Friedrich Wilhelm Schadow at the Dusseldorf Academy of Painting*. He studied at St. Petersburg and traveled in Italy, Holland and Scandinavia.

In his early work he followed the pseudo-idealism of the German romantic school, but on removing to Munich in 1835, the stronger influence of Louis Gurlitt turned his talent into new channels, and he became the founder of the German realistic school. Although his landscapes evince too much of his aim at picture-making and lack personal temperament, he is a master of technique, and is historically important as a reformer.
