RAYSKI Ferdinand von (b. 1806, Pegau, d. 1890, Dresden) Nationality : German

German painter. From 1816 to 1821 he studied drawing under Traugott Faber (1786-1863) at the Freimaurerinstitut in Dresden and from 1823 to 1825 he was at the Kunstakademie. In 1829 he began his career as an artist, initially painting portraits of his noble relatives in Hannover and Silesia. From 1831 to 1834 he lived in Dresden, receiving numerous portrait commissions. In 1834-35, while in Paris, he was influenced by the paintings of Delacroix, Gericault and Gros. His use of colour became freer, and his compositions more dramatic and dynamic, especially in the historical subjects he attempted (e.g. Murder of Thomas Becket, c. 1835; Dresden, Gemaldegalerie).
