Johann Friedrich Bause

1738 Halle – 1814 Weimar

Although Johann Friedrich Bause is best known for his brilliantly executed portrait engravings, his printed oeuvre comprises several prints on allegorical, mythological and biblical themes as well as a few landscapes. As in his portraits, Bause often drew inspiration from works by well-known contemporary painters such as Anton Graff and Adam Friedrich Oeser.
