Henry Fuseli, born in Zurich in 1741 as Johann Heinrich Füssli, is one of the most remarkable painters of his time. Fuseli came from a well-educated environment and received first impulses from his father, who himself was a landscape and still life painter. Fuseli's sisters were also painters. Henry Fuseli was after a theology study first pastor, but then had to leave his native Zurich due to critical writings. At that time, the painting pastor had already dealt with ancient writings of Homer, Shakespeare and Dante.

In 1764 Fuseli settled in London after a brief stop in Berlin, where he had made a name for himself as a translator. The portrait painter Sir Joshua Reynolds helped him focus on painting in the future. Between 1770 and 1778 Fuseli lived in Rome, studied intensively the works of Michelangelo and dealt with the works of antiquity. Back in London, Fuseli was inducted into the Royal Academy: his reputation was legendary at the time. With the oil painting "Thor's fight with the Midgard Serpent" Fuseli was appointed full member of the Academy. A few years later he also got a professorship.

What distinguishes the painting of the Swiss-English artist? Fuseli's art is considered suggestive, demonic, intense-sensual. The visionary, the horrible is the subject of his painting. This translates Fuseli into sensual colors and strong light-dark contrasts, as in "Titania and Bottom". At the same time the painter was a lover of theater and literature. In an emotionally charged manner he illustrated Shakespeare's dramas in a drastic black-and-white coloring, for example "Hamlet". The painting "The Three Witches Appear Macbeth and Banquo" is magnificent in its sombre coloring and tangible drama. © Meisterdrucke
