Johann Albrecht Dietzsch

1720–1783, Nuremberg

Johann Albrecht Dietzsch came from a large, widely ramified family of artists from Nuremberg, whose diverse and extensive activities enriched the world of art in 18th century Germany. Johann Albrecht was apprenticed to his father, the Preisler student Johann Israel Dietzsch, and together with his brother, Johann Christoph, gave weekly soirées for artists and art lovers up to 1767. He was a talented musician who also built up his own collection of engravings. Apart from his portraits and still lifes, Dietzsch is particularly well known for his Dutch-style landscapes and genre scenes, which often reveal clear traces of the works of Adriaen van Ostade and David Teniers.
