Wilhelm Tischbein (portrait by Johann Heinrich Lips)


German Neoclassical painter from the Tischbein family of artists, whose most famous painting, Goethe in the Roman Campagna (1787) depicts his friend, the writer and statesman Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, travelling in Italy.

Tischbein died on 26 February 1829 in Eutin at age 78. He spent several years after 1810 writing his autobiography, Aus meinem Leben. It was not published until 1861 and has not been reissued since. His son, Peter Friedrich Ludwig Tischbein, was a noted forester and naturalist.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes from Die Jugend großer Deutscher: von ihnen selbst erzählt by Rudolf Karl Goldschmit-Jentner (Inselverlag, 1944), page 51: "Mein Vater hatte in seinem Pulte eine Bibel, worin er den Tag und die Stunde geschrieben, wann ihm ein Söhnlein oder Töchterlein geboren war. Darin stand: „1751 den 15. Februar zwischen vier und fünf Uhr Morgens wurde mir ein Knäblein geboren, den nannte ich Johann Heinrich Wilhelm.“

Translation: My father had a Bible in his desk, in which he wrote the day and the hour when a little son or little daughter was born to him. It read: "1751 February 15 between 4 and 5 o'clock in the morning a boy was born to me called Johann Heinrich Wilhelm."
