Adolf Dauthage (born February 20, 1825 in Vienna , † June 3, 1883 in Rustendorf near Vienna) was an Austrian lithographer .
Adolf Dauthage came from a humble background (son of a plumber ) and was originally supposed to take up the profession of gilding . After terminating his studies at the Vienna Academy , he worked four years in the studio of Josef Kriehuber . Like him, he mainly worked as a portrait lithographer . He enjoyed great popularity in Viennese society, whose members he portrayed in single sheets and in whole series ( Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall , Franz Grillparzer , František Palacký , members of the Academy of Sciences , famous actors). The works of the late period (from 1865) have lost their expression and characteristics , probably under the influence of photography .
