Artist. Born in Wolgast, Germany, he was a painter and draughtsman, noted among the best Romanticism era artist. His artistic talent began in 1797, when he took drawing lessons under Joachim Herterich. He studied at the Copenhagen art academy, also studied Italian Renaissance and Dutch painting in Dresden and worked as an independent artist. By the early 1800s, he began developing his color theory and painted numerous large format pictures, including "The Hülsenbeck Children". In 1809, his etched drawings enabled him to contribute to projects like the "Zeitung für Einsiedler", which was published by Bretano and Arnim. Later before his death, Perthes-Verlag published his treatise on color spheres. He died of tuberculosis at age 33 in Hamburg, Germany.
