Brand, Christian Hilfgott#

b. Frankfurt an der Oder (Germany), March 16, 1693, d. Vienna, July 22, 1756, important landscape painter; father of Johann Christian Brand and Friedrich August Brand, who further developed their father's style in their own landscapes. Around 1720 came to Vienna, where his style started to diverge from the sombre Dutch painters he had imitated and to take on a finely graduated colourful quality.
