HESS Heinrich Maria von (b. 1798, Dsseldorf, d. 1863, Mnchen) Nationality : German

German painter. After training (1813-17) under Peter von Langer (1756-1824) at the Akademie der bildenden Kunste in Munich, he painted religious subjects under the influence of Peter Cornelius. In 1821 he joined the Lukasbruder, and the circle around Crown Prince Ludwig I of Bavaria, in Rome. Apollo among the Muses (1824; Munich, Neue Pinakothek), painted for Maximilian I, shows Hess to be among the most gifted of the German artists working in Rome. The influence of Raphael, glowing but carefully harmonized colours, gliding figures and drapery animate this early masterpiece.
