Artist Bio:

Carl Reichert (Julius Hartung) German :1836 to 1918

A painter of genre, animals and town scenes, Reichert was born in Vienna on 27th August 1836 and died in Gratz on 5th April 1918. He was the son of the portrait and animal painter Heinrich Reichert and the brother of Heinrich Reichert who painted theatre scenery and the nephew of Bonfiaz Heinrich and Franz Heinrich Reichert. 

Carl was a student at the Academy of Drawing in Gratz with J Tunner and E Chr Moser. He then studied in Munich and from 1866 to 1867 in Rome with Johann Passini and Anton Romako. From 1869 to 1910 he worked in Vienna and then later in Gratz. He published a series of engravings depicting the ‘old’ Gratz and in particular the castle. Carl is well known for his small-scale highly detailed portraits of dogs. 

The museum in Baden-Baden houses a work by the artist.

During his career Reichert used the pseudonym J Hartung.
