Richter, Adrian Ludwig

Adrian Ludwig Richter was the most well known, and the most typical German illustrator of the middle of the nineteenth century. Richter visited Italy from 1823–1826, and his Thunderstorm in the Sabine Mountains is one of the rare Italian paintings he has done. In Italy, his conception of the landscape painting of idealistic ideas on man-nature harmony was shaped.

After returning to Germany, he married in Dresden, in 1828 he worked as a designer for the Meissen porcelain factory and taught from 1828 to 1835 at the State School of Painting in Meissen. In 1841 Adrian Ludwig Richter became a professor and head of the landscape painting at the Dresden Academy, (now Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden). The Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister in Dresden owns one of his best and most characteristic paintings, Bridal Procession in a Spring Landscape, which won him a gold at the world exhibition Paris 1855.

The interest of his uneventful life centers within the circle of his art. As a painter, Adrian Ludwig Richter aimed at a thorough blending of the figure element with the landscape. One of his most notable proteges was Hermann Lungkwitz. In his life, he illustrated over 150 books, including many of the most famous fairy tales. An eye disease put a stop to the practice of his art in 1874, he was pensioned in 1877.
