A German painter, Ernst Hildebrand studied in Berlin. He was known for portraits, genre, historical scene and marine painting.  Among his paintings are Christ on the Mount of Olives, Queen Luise of Prussia Fleeing To Memel Away from Napoleon and Tullia, the town hall of Berlin.

He was a son of Falkenberger manor owner and later Sorauer station master Karl Hildebrand and his wife Emma, née Lemm. He was a student of Carl Steffeck in Berlin, and then spent  a year in Paris. In 1875 he became a professor at the School of Art in Karlsruhe, and from his position at the Berlin Academy, he moved in 1880 to the Academy of Arts in Berlin.  However, he gave up his teaching career in 1885.

Initially, Hildebrand devoted himself exclusively to decorative painting, but then turned to genre painting, mainly with the figures of Luther and Queen Louise. In the nineties, he put the emphasis on the portrait painting  His paintings in these years are according to popular taste of showy coloration, but sometimes slide into routine Salon art.

Hildebrand also worked for the court circles and painted among others the Grand Duke and the Grand Duchess of Baden and the German Crown Prince and his family. With Tullia, who drives her team over the corpse of her father in 1886, he ventured a try in the field of history painting.

In addition to pictures of works of literature, such as a representation of Gretchen in prison, he also created portraits of professors of his time, such as a portrait of the astronomer Arthur Auwers His portrait of Karl Möbius in 1895 is owned by the Humboldt University in Berlin.

Ernst Hildebrand's brother Max (1839-1910) was a precision mechanic and manufacturer of optical devices.
