Julius Jacob II

Biography from Auctionata

After first successful city views of Berlin the oeuvre of the Berlin painter, Julius Jacob the Younger (1842-1929) focused further on the old city of Berlin and the growing big city.  A watercolor cycle of 70 works made him one of the most famous chroniclers of Old Berlin (1862-1885).  His painting of the Wilhelmplatz (1886) is one of his best-known paintings. 

His landscape paintings show influences of Carl Blechen and the Barbizon School.  Julius originally trained at the studio of Karl Wilhelm Gropius as a painter to the court theater for the Berliner B├╝hnen and then worked for them as a scene painter.  Afterwards, Julius attended the Academy and did study trips to Italy.  His activity as a lecturer began in 1882 for landscape drawing and watercolor painting at the Berlin building academy and the technical university.
