Heinrich Schonfeld

Johann Heinrich Schönfeld

German painter and etcher. His early career is not well documented; he spent about a decade in Italy (mainly Rome and Naples) as a young man, but it is only after he settled in Augsburg in 1652 that his development can be traced through dated works. He was versatile and prolific, painting historical and genre subjects as well as many altarpieces for churches in southern Germany. His style was lively and eclectic, drawing on various Italian influences, in his delicate colouring and lightness of touch he anticipates elements of German Rococo art.
