German painter and art teacher who was a late adherent of the Nazarene movement, but was also heavily influenced by impressionism and Art Nouveau.
By 1870, he was studying in Munich. He moved to Paris in 1878 for further studies with Luc-Olivier Merson, then worked as a painter of genre scenes in Alsace from 1880 to 1882. The following year, he took a study trip to Italy. His experiences there inspired him to devote himself to religious art when he returned to Munich. From 1898 to 1924, he was the Professor of Religious Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts; the last person to hold that chair. Among his best-known students were Theodor Baierl, the church painter Josef Wittmann and Leo Götz.
In 1914, he was knighted by King Ludwig III of Bavaria.
He died on 13 February 1931 in Munich.
