Johann Adam Klein

1792 Nuremberg – 1875 Munich

After completing his training under Ambrosius Gabler and equipped with a letter of recommendation from Johann Friedrich Frauenholz, Johann Adam Klein set out on his first journey to Vienna in September 1811. In contrast to his contemporaries Kobell, Hess and Adam, Klein did not care much for large, dramatic battle scenes. As a draughtsman and etcher of military objects he took a great interest in the everyday aspects of military life. In the following years Klein Klein went on several walking tours together with fellow artists through the surroundings of Vienna and the Salzburger Land area and produced several works on the theme of friendship, so popular in the early period of German Romanticism.
