Carl Borromäus Andreas Ruthart
(1630 - after 1703)
Carl Borromäus Andreas Ruthart was active/lived in Germany. Carl Ruthart is known for painting.
Born in Danzig, Carl Borromäus Andreas Ruthart enlisted as a free master of the Painter’s Guild in Antwerp in 1663 after a visit to Rome in 1659. Under the influence of painters like Jan Fyt and Frans Snyders, he here began a career as a wildlife painter, frequently showing animals hunting or fighting. Ruthart’s lively paintings, while always maintaining a highly recognisable individualised style, certainly demonstrate his clear engagement with the wider artistic context in which he worked, as his precise knowledge of the anatomy of his subjects and skill in rendering texture.
