Carl Wilhelm Böhme (Großpörthen 1719 oder 1720 - 1789 Berlin) began his apprenticeship at Meissen in January 1736. Within just a few years he advanced to become one of the best painters of Watteau scenes in the manufactory. He left Meissen in 1762 following disputes over pay and moved to Berlin, where soon found a position as vice chief of painters in the new Royal Manufactory. He was to specialise in marine scenes and landscapes with figures. He became Prussian court painter in 1764.
