There is little biographical data known of Christian Stöcklin except that he worked primarily in Frankfurt after leaving his native Switzerland. Stöcklin's œuvre is almost exclusively devoted to church interiors. Many of these works are kept in German museums, including the Gemäldegalerie of Dresden. Stöcklin followed a tradition established in the seventeenth century by Pieter Neefs, and, in spite of the different periods, Stöcklin's works have often mistakenly been attributed to Neefs.
