Rudolf Schweinitz

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rudolf Schweinitz (born January 15, 1839 in Charlottenburg , † January 7, 1896 in Berlin ) was a German sculptor.


Rudolf Schweinitz trained at the Berlin Academy from 1855 to 1865 with Hermann Schievelbein , where he participated in his Freiherr-vom-Stein monument. In 1865 he went to Italy via Paris and then made shorter study trips to Copenhagen , Munich , Vienna and Pest . Even the genre figures he worked on at that time aroused the most beautiful hopes, which he later fulfilled in abundance. In an existential crisis due to a lack of commissions, he committed suicide in 1896 .
