(please note additional Austrian VAT (Value Added Tax) applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
Johann Nepomuk Hoechle was a very well-known Austrian historical painter and graphic artist who was active in the beginning of the 19th century. He was born in 1790 in Munich and commenced his studies at the Vienna Academy at the age of 14 (!). He was studying under Fueger, Wutky and Ignace Duvivier. The artist soon became a much known battle painter owing his success to great events of his time - the Napolenic era. In 1809, in the night preceding the battle of Aspern, while drawing a sketch on the hill close to Vienna, Hoechle was captured by the French. He was sentenced to execution by a firing squad as a spy, but his great wit saved him.
