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

Friedrich Gauermann was born in Miesenbach, Austria in 1807.  Best known for his paintings of humans and animals in nature, Friedrich was the son of stonemason and painter, Jakob Gauermann.

Gauermann began his studies by copying landscapes hanging in the galleries around his home, and furthered his lessons under Josef Mossmer at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts.   During his travels around Austria, Friedrich painted copies of Master works deemed remarkable for someone his age, and later exhibited at the Vienna Exhibition of 1824.

His work drew the attention of Prince Metternich and Caraman, the French Ambassador, leading to commissions in 1825 and 1826. A painting he exhibited in 1829, The Storm, enhanced his growing reputation and ensured that his work obtained correspondingly high prices.  His Field Labourer was regarded by many as the most noteworthy picture in the Vienna exhibition of 1834, and his numerous depictions of animals have entitled him to place in the first rank of painters of this class of subjects.

Friedrich Gauermann saw nature as a living whole, and excelled in representing the free life of animals in wild mountain scenery.  His works exhibit patient and keen observation, free and correct handling of details, and bold and clear coloring. Many of Gauermann’s pictures have been engraved. After his death in Vienna in 1862, a selection of fifty-three of his works was prepared for this purpose by the Austrian Kunstverein (Art Union).
