Andreas Achenbach (1815 – 1910) este ultimul pictor al Scolii din Düsseldorf pe care il prezint si dupa parerea mea este unul dintre cei mai buni. Considerat de expertii de arta “Parintele peisagisticii germane”, multe dintre lucrarile lui se afla in marile muzee ale Germaniei, dar si in Statele Unite.
Eng. Andreas Achenbach (1815 – 1910) was a German landscape painter, associated with the Düsseldorf school of painting. The Chambers Biographical Dictionary says of him that „he was regarded as the father of 19th century German landscape painting.” A number of his finest works are to be found at the Berlin National Gallery, the New Pinakothek in Munich, and the galleries at Dresden, Darmstadt, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Leipzig and Hamburg. Many of his paintings are in galleries in the United States.
Nascut la Kassel, Andreas Achenbach si-a început educaţia artistică în 1827 la Düsseldorf, sub directoratul lui Friedrich Wilhelm Schadow, la Academia de Pictura din Düsseldorf. Achenbach a studiat si la St Petersburg şi a călătorit în Italia, Olanda si Scandinavia.
Eng. Born at Kassel, he began his art education in 1827 in Düsseldorf under Friedrich Wilhelm Schadow at the Düsseldorf Academy of Painting. He studied at St Petersburg and travelled in Italy, Holland and Scandinavia.
În lucrarile sale timpurii el a fost adeptul pseudo-idealismului şcolii romantice germane; dupa mutarea lui la Munchen în 1835, sub o puternică influenţă a lui Louis Gurlitt si-a canalizat talentul spe noi tematici, devenind fondatorul şcolii realiste germane. Andreas Achenbach a fost medaliat la Paris în 1855 şi a fost numit Cavaler al Legiunii de Onoare a Franţei.
Eng. In his early work he followed the pseudo-idealism of the German romantic school, but on removing to Munich in 1835, the stronger influence of Louis Gurlitt turned his talent into new channels, and he became the founder of the German realistic school. Andreas Achenbach, received a medal of the first class in Paris in 1855, and was named a Chevalier of the French Legion of Honor.
