Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (March 26, 1794 - May 24, 1872) was a German painter. In 1818 he followed the founders of the new artistic brotherhood, the Nazarene movement in their pilgrimage to Rome. This school of religious and romantic art abjured modern styles and reverted to and revived the principles and practice of earlier periods. His second period dates from 1825, when he left Rome, settled in Munich, entered the service of King Ludwig. These interminable compositions are creative, learned in composition, masterly in drawing, but exaggerated in thought and extravagant in style. Schnorr's third period is marked by his biblical illustrations.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
