Footnotes

  • One of the last great artists of the Rococo era, Winck is best known as a painter and engraver of allegorical and religious subjects. Following his apprenticeships with Anton Scheidler (active 1745-c.1775) and Jacob Feichtmayr (active 1735-1767), Winck became one of the most sought-after fresco and altarpiece artists in Bavaria, patronised by both the church and the nobility. In 1769, he was appointed court painter to the Elector of Bavaria, signing his works, 'Aulae Bojcae Pictor' (Bavarian Court Painter).

    Winck married Elizabeth Schega, daughter of the Bavarian medallist and engraver Franz Andreas Schega (1711-1787) and was a close friend of the painter and miniaturist, Georges Desmarées (Swedish, 1697–1776), who also enjoyed the patronage of the Bavarian court.
