Johann Georg Mansfeld

1764–1817, Vienna

The ‘Imperial and Royal Cabinet Etcher’, Johann Georg Mansfeld, learned his craft from his father, Johann Ernst (1739–1796), who himself had studied under Johann Jacob Schmutzer. At an early stage, around 1802, Mansfeld the Younger turned his attention to the recently invented printing process of lithography and after 1811 collaborated in Vienna with Johann Adam Klein, making lithographs after his designs. In 1815, Mansfeld set up his own lithographic studio in the city (‘k.k. Lythogr. Bureau’), where Klein and Johann Christoph Erhard were among his collaborators in 1816.
