After study in Italy he returned to Germany and became an engraver, sculptor, designer, and a professor at the School of Design in Augsburg. A prolific engraver, his rococo designs were published and distributed widely, including a print in the Burrell Gallery Glasgow of urns very similar to the offered lot.
