Daniel Niklaus Chodowiecki (16 October 1726 - 1801) was a Polish-German painter and printmaker with Huguenot ancestry, who is most famous as an etcher. He spent most of his life in Berlin, and became the director of the Berlin Academy of Art. His works include several thousand etchings, and many drawings and paintings. He illustrated nearly all of the great classics. His prints represent in great detail the life of the middle classes during the Zopfstil period, a time between Rococo and Classicism. He also illustrated scientific books by Basedow, Buffon, Lavater, Pestalozzi and others. He painted many portraits of Polish gentry and was interested in Huguenot and Polish history as well, making some paintings on the topic.
