The German painter Anton Raphael Mengs went down in art history as a pioneer of classicism. Classicism stands for an epoch that lasted from 1770 to 1840. The art epoch replaced the baroque and was composed of three stylistic movements - Biedermeier, Empire and Louis-seize. Classicism is characterized by straightforward, simple forms and a rational coolness. The similarity to classical-antique models was always present. The German archaeologist Johann Joachim Winckelmann is regarded as the founder of the style epoch, who, in addition to his research work, was also strongly committed to German art history.

Anton Raphael Mengs comes from a family of artists. His father Ismael was court painter for the Saxonian high nobility. Early on he taught his son and his sister Theresa painting. After school Anton Mengs followed his father to Rome. Here father and son studied the old masters - Michelangelo and Raphael. After his return from Italy Anton worked as a cabinet painter in Dresden. Before he took up a position as a court painter for Friedrich August II, Anton Raphael Mengs travelled to Rome again. Here he converted to Catholicism to marry his future wife, the Roman Margherita Guazzi. At the court of Friedrich August II Anton earned very well. But Italy did not let go of the young painter. He travelled to Florence and Venice before settling in Rome for the third time. Now he was appointed a member of the Accademia di San Luca - an artists' association once founded by Pope Gregory. The group advocated a reform of the teaching of art. The coat of arms of the Accademia di San Luca still hangs in Rome today.

In the artists' association Anton meets Johann Joachim Winckelmann, who introduces him to the world of classicism. The two are close friends throughout their lives. In the years that followed, Winckelmann had a considerable influence on the further development of Anton Raphael Mengs's understanding of art. This fact was reflected in his paintings. But Winckelmann was not the only one who had a decisive influence on the German painter. The Spaniard José Nicolás de Azara, who acted as a diplomat and patron of the arts, also became a silent patron of Meng's art. For many years he supported him in publishing his works in Europe. His influence in Rome increased. He made a name for himself. He also did not remain unknown to Pope Clemens. In 1755 he was appointed Knight of the Order of the Golden Spur at a great ceremony - which is still a great honor today. The Spanish royal family then commissioned a portrait of him. A follow-up commission came about. Anton was commissioned to decorate the royal palace in Madrid. He accepted this invitation. In the following years he alternated between commissions at the Spanish royal house and the Vatican. He was also appointed president of the Accademia di San Luca. © Meisterdrucke
