Feuerbach Paintings Reproductions and Biography

Feuerbach, Anselm von (an'z?lm f?n foi'?rbakh) , 1829?80, German painter. He studied in Germany, Paris, and Rome, spending much of his life in Italy. He sought to produce oil paintings of pure classicism that were both didactic and idealistic. Most of his famous works belong to his Roman period (1856?73), including Battle of the Amazons (Nuremberg), Iphigenia (Stuttgart), and Medea (Munich). His portraits have withstood critical opinion better than his history paintings. His autobiography (1882) emphasizes his misunderstood genius.
