Executed in 1824 by Vienna miniaturist C. Hirsch, it is an earliest known portrait of celebrated German-Austrian actor of 1st Half of the 19th century - Heinrich Anschuetz (Anschütz).
He was born on 8 February 1785 in Luckau, Niederlausitz (then Saxony). He studied at the University of Leipzig, in which city he saw the performance of August Wilhelm Iffland, Ferdinand Esslair, and other distinguished actors who occasionally played there. He began his career as an actor at Nuremberg in 1807, performed fourteen years long at the best stages of Germany, before in 1821 he came to Vienna where he became member of the troup of Hofburgtheater (court theater). He played both heroic and character parts, and was for many years the central figure at this famous playhouse with which he was so long identified. He published an autobiography under the title of "Heinrich Anschütz, Erinnerungen aus dessen Leben und Wirken" ("Heinrich Anschütz, Recollections from his life and works"), Vienna 1866 (CLICK HERE). He died in Vienna, on 29 December 1865 and was buried at the Vienna Evangelic Cemetery Matzleinsdorf (tomb No.70).
For other known portraits of this man and his extensive biography see our images nr.8-11.
