Wilhelm Ernst Wunder - biography

In addition to his murals and ceiling paintings for castles and churches in the principality of Margrave Friedrich of Bayreuth, the Bayreuth court painter Wilhelm Ernst Wunder also created cabinet paintings. Wunder was in great demand as a painter of floral and hunting still lifes, as evidenced by a statement by J. G. Meusel in 1788, shortly after Wunder’s death: “In his best days he had many orders from abroad and there is almost no country in Europe where his work did not go.”
