Heinrich Vogtherr II. (1513-1568)

Heinrich Vogtherr II. was an Austrian painter, draughtsman, wood cutter and etcher. His father, Heinrich Vogtherr the Elder was an important publisher of medical and spiritual writings during the Reformation period. The young Vogtherr came with his father to Straßburg in 1625 and assisted him in the arts and crafts. About 15 years later, he went to Augsburg as a painter and etcher, where he stood in the commission of the Fugger dynasty and created numerous fresco paintings for many buildings in Augsburg. In 1554, he moved with his father to Vienna, who was appointed ophthalmologist by the court of Ferdinand I. (tm)
