Erdmann Encke (1843-1896)
Erdmann Encke is said to have been a descendant of Friedrich Wilhelm II and thus a relative of the Prussian royal family. He received his artistic training with Albert Wolff. Encke was a member of the Akademie der Künste and sculptor to the Imperial Court. In Berlin, he created among others the bronze statue of Elector Frederick I of Brandenburg for a niche next to the main entrance of the town hall, the marble statue of Queen Luise and a boy with pony at the Tiergarten, as well as the bronzes of the Great Elector and Frederick the Great for the Hall of Fame. Encke is buried in an honorary grave in the Old Cemetery of Wannsee. (cko)
