Wilhelm von Kobell (April 6, 1766 - July 15, 1853) was a German painter, printmaker and teacher. Kobell was born in Mannheim, the son of Ferdinand Kobell, a landscape painter who cited Claude Lorrain as his influence. Wilhelm's initial lessons were supplied by his father and his uncle, Franz Kobell. He received further training under Franz Anton, von Leydendorf and Egid Verhelst in the art of engraving at the Zeichnungsakademie in Mannheim. During this time he practiced various styles, including 17th-century Dutch painting and 18th-century English art. He was supported by Charles Theodore. Throughout his life Kobell traveled to England, France and Italy but ultimately based his style on Dutch art.
