Danish portrait-painter; born in Copenhagen 1690; died in Dresden Dec. 26, 1765. He learned the art of miniature- and enamel-painting in Lübeck, and then traveled through Germany, Italy, and Austria, earning a scant livelihood until 1764, when he was appointed professor at the Academy of Art in Dresden, and court painter to King August III., from whom he received an annuity.
