Oswald Achenbach : Biography

Oswald Achenbach (2 February 1827 – 1 February 1905) was a German landscape painter. Born in Düsseldorf, he received his art education from his brother, Andreas Achenbach. His landscapes generally dwell on the rich and glowing effects of color which drew him to the Bay of Naples and the neighborhood of Rome. From 1863 to 1872 he was Professor of Landscape Painting connected to the Düsseldorf School. He died in Düsseldorf of an inflammation of the lungs. He is represented at most of the important German galleries of modern art.
