Franz Krüger was a Prussian painter and lithographer during the early 19th century who was perhaps most well known for his romantic approach to painting the equine animal.
Not Just Horses
This talent was stoked in Berlin where he exhibited an affinity for portraiture. Among his satisfied clients were a number of military officers and Prince August of Prussia. This led him to become a popular portrait artist among the well-to-do of Berlin and beyond.
The Quiet Sort
I could find very little about this artist online, which is likely due to a language barrier. I hope anyone who knows something about Franz will enlighten us in the comments below, his work is lovely & I’d love to learn more about him.
I Can’t Pick a Favorite
I really like Mr. Krüger’s work and deciding which one I like best is impossible. His style appears casual on the surface, but his attention to detail is impeccable, his colors very true to life and his ability to create personality in his animals with brushstrokes is genius.
