Biography  
Julius Jacob II


Biography from Auctionata

Julius Jacob the Younger (1842-1929) After first successful city views of Berlin the oeuvre of the Berlin painter focuses further on the old city of Berlin and the growing big city. A watercolor cycle of 70 works makes 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. (tm)
