RUTHART Carl Borromaus Andreas (b. 1630, Danzig, d. 1703, L'Aquila) Nationality : German

German painter, specialist in painting animals. He was born and trained in Danzig (now Gdansk, Poland), and visited Rome in 1659. Ruthart spent 1663 and 1664 in Antwerp, where he joined the painters' guild and could study first-hand the work of Flemish animal painters such as Frans Snyders. Artists such as Wilhelm van Ehrenberg often called on Ruthart to add animals to their architectural or landscape scenes. His reputation lay not only in his understanding of animal anatomy and his skill at painting fur but his ability to integrate animals smoothly into a variety of settings, from mythological or biblical contexts to idyllic scenes.
