Did You Know?

Carl Ludwig Tischbein came from a family that produced 28 artists and artisans active in Germany and throughout Europe.


Carl Ludwig Tischbein was one of many artists who traveled from across Europe to Rome during the early 19th century and drew upon the city’s ancient past and its surrounding landscape for inspiration. This spare drawing uses Tischbein's window as a compositional device, framing a casual view of rooftops and walled gardens populated by a variety of plants and a small cat.
