Florian Grospietsch

1789 Protzan – 1820/28 active in Rome and Naples

Florian Grospietsch, who hailed from Silesia, was largely self-trained. From 1821 to 1824 he lived and worked in Rome where, like many young German artists, he belonged to the circle around Koch and, drawing inspiration from him, explored the beautiful landscape of the Campagna and the coast of southern Italy. Grospietsch used a highly sophisticated etching technique which is reminiscent of the printed work of his friend Joseph Anton Koch, albeit superior to the latter in its professional polish.
