The Prussian painter, draftsman and illustrator Adolph Friedrich Erdmann von Menzel (1815 - 1905) is regarded as the most important artist of realism. In addition, one could also recognize the impressionism in the paintings. This style inspired him on a trip to Paris. For example, the paintings "the balcony room" and "Waldesnacht" were created. Ultimately, he developed his own style and painting technique, with which he was ahead of his time.

Menzel was often dubbed "the little excellency" because he was with his 1.40 m. rather small and gnomenhaft was. His artistic approach began in 1839, when he was commissioned by the German historian Franz Theodor Kugler to create illustrations of a multi-volume story about Frederick the Great. Menzel showed great diligence in creating 400 pen drawings within three years. Through this work, he became known to the general public and he received further orders. At first, it was historical paintings that Menzel created. Later, he often treated the present in his paintings.

Menzels life was rather boring and uneventful, as he retired and lived without friends. Thus, he traveled frequently and sought to compensate for the loneliness with his pictures. Due to his size he was never able to participate in battles, so at least he wanted to express his sense of duty. This is how one of his most famous paintings "Frederick and His Own at the Battle of Hochkirch" from the period between 1850 and 1856, which was exhibited both in the Academy of the Arts and later in the Paris World Fair, and in public, rather for incomprehension The inspiration for the painting is the defeat at the Battle of Hochkirch in 1758, when the Prussians desperately try to fend off the Austrian surprise attack. In the center and raised to the troops stands King Frederick II, who tries to organize the resistance. Striking in the painting is that Menzel moved the anonymous soldier into the foreground, which clearly differentiated the painting from other battle paintings. In 1866 he traveled to the scenes of the wars. As a result, his paintings became darker and showed dying and dead soldiers. Finally, he turned away from the battle paintings and painted construction sites or other places in Berlin, the city in which he lived and which then became the capital of the German Reich. In 1895 he was honorary citizen of Berlin for the 80th birthday. His death saw Menzel come, what he wrote in a New Year's greeting in 1905 to Kaiser Wilhelm II. © Meisterdrucke
