Biography from Auctionata:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Ludwig Sigismund Ruhl received his first drawing lessons from his father, the sculptor Johann Christian Ruhl and as a young man attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Kassel where he met the painter Ludwig Emil Grimm.  Ruhl studied aesthetics and art history in Göttingen and later at the Dresden Academy where he made the acquaintance of Arthur Schopenhauer, whom he portrayed in 1815. 

He attended the Art Academy in Munich, starting a friendship with the landscape painter Karl Philipp Fohr, followed by a sojourn in Rome.  Here he was inspired by the Renaissance masters and painted in the style of the Nazarene school, depicting primarily religious motives.

Eventually he returned to his hometown Kassel in 1818.  He traveled to Hanau, Frankfurt and Berlin.  During this time he created drawings, paintings, primarily with allegorical and historical subjects, and illustrations to Shakespeare's dramas.  In 1832 Ruhl took a professorship at the Academy before being appointed director of the museum in Kassel and later the Academy. 

During the 1840s Ruhl mainly depicted mythological motifs.  In his later creative period Ruhl returned to drawing and created several design for ceramics. (tfa)
