Julius Schnorr Von Karolsfeld, a German painter, born in Leipsic, March 26, 1794, died in Dresden, May 24, 1872. He was the son of the painter Veit Hans Schnorr (1764-1841), and studied under his father, in Vienna, and in Italy. In 1817 he went to Florence and Rome, where Overbeck and Cornelius procured orders for him for frescoes, and he also executed there many oil paintings of religious subjects. In 1827 he became professor at the academy of Munich, and in 1846 removed as professor to Dresden, where he was also director of the picture galleries. He was the founder of a new school in opposition to the unconventional style of Kaulbach, and adhered to the most rigid rules of art. His most celebrated works are the frescoes and paintings of the Nibelungen, and his series of encaustic pictures illustrating the history of Charlemagne, Frederick Barbarossa, and Rudolph of Hapsburg, all in the royal palace at Munich; "Luther at the Diet of Worms," also in Munich; and his designs for the windows in St. Paul's cathedral, London. His best known designs for illustrated books are his Bibel in Bildern (Leipsic, 1852-60), and those prepared in conjunction with Neureuther for the Nibelun-genlied. - His brother Ludwig Feedinand (1788-1853),' chief director of the Belvedere gallery in Vienna, was a good painter of the romantic school, and executed admirable designs for Goethe's Faust.
