(please note additional Austrian VAT (Value Added Tax) applies for transactions concluded within the European Union)
Johann Baptist Seele was born on the 27th of June 1774 on Messkirch, Baden-Wuerttemberg, and died (at the age of only 40) on the 27th of August 1814 in Stuttgart. He was a son of a corporal. Seele spent his childhood years in Huefingen and Donaueschingen. Already as a young boy he began making military drawings. At the intercession of the Princess Antonia von Fuerstenberg, he became in 1789 a student of the Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart. From 1792 he was active in Donaueschingen. As one gathers from Thieme-Becker, in the 1790s, exposed to numerous troops plaguing and passing through his country, Seele became fascinated with military genre, narratives of living and "hustle and bustle" (sic!), as well as in soldiers engaged in deeply moving acts. Parallel to that, he worked on portraits of members of the Court of Princely family Fuerstenberg, in 1800 portrayed the Austrian Commander-in-Chief, Archduke Carl; in 1801 was active at the Court in Karlsruhe. From 1798, with brief interruptions, he lived in Stuttgart; where in 1804 was appointed Court artist and Director of Royal Gallery. In 1808/09 he studied in Munich. In 1810, Seele completed his most important monumental battle painting "The Capture of Pfenningsberg by Linz", which became a highly reliable source for specialists in uniformology.
