Carl Wuttke

Born 1849 Trebnitz / Died 1927 Munich

 

German architecture and landscape painter

 

Carl Wutte was known as a German architecture and landscape painter.  He studied from 1871 to 1873 at the

Art Academy in Berlin, 1873 with Angelo Quaglio II (1829-1890) in Munich,  and from 1877 to 1878 with 

Eugen Ducker in Dusseldorf.  In 1874 he traveled to Italy, where he remained until 1876, painting in Italy, Sicily and

Sardinia. He visited Andalusia and Norway in 1880 and 1894, settling in Munich in1885.  Wuttke traveled to some

unusual destinations to paint, including Africa (Algeria, Egypt, Sudan), the Sinai, and in 1893 the United States. 

In 1897-99 he undertook a world tour, during which he visited China and Japan.  Upon returning from 

the Far East, he was commissioned by Kaiser Wilhelm II to paint the Silver Salon of the Berlin Castle.

He also executed commissions for Prince Heinrich of Prussia.

 

His landscapes are often genre scenes.  In his earlier paintings, he concentrated on painting finely gradated light,

predominant in the pre-impressionistic Romantic style. However, his later works are characterized by much brighter  

colors, and quite spontaneous and energetic brushwork - in the turn-of-the-century Impressionist  manner.
