Johann Georg Hainz

1630-1688 Germany/Baroque

 

Brief Biography-Johann Georg Hainz was regarded as the first still-life painter of Hamburg. He gained influences from the works of Dutch still life painters on visits to Holland. He was a free master from 1682 after a stay with the Hamburg painters’ guild, which meant he was no longer attached to any particular guild and therefore not privy to their rights. He painted portraits when in Leipzig, however, he is known mostly for his trompe l'oeil stills and was held in high esteem by Joachim von Sandrart for his talent in the subject. His most famous works were of collectors’ cabinets.
