PETTENKOFEN August von (b. 1822, Wien, d. 1889, Wien) Nationality : Austrian

Austrian painter and lithographer. He studied (1837-40) under Leopold Kupelwieser at the Akademie der Bildenden Kunste in Vienna. From 1837 to about 1847 he worked intensively in the relatively new medium of lithography. The caricatures he provided for Viennese magazines such as Der Kobold or Wiener Blatter reveal the strong influence of French lithography. On leaving the Akademie, Pettenkofen first pursued a military career and from 1841 to 1843 he was stationed in Padua. On returning to Vienna, however, he became a private pupil of Franz Eybl, attracted by this painter's fresh approach and realistic style.
