RICHTER, Franz Ferdinand
(b. 1693, Breslau, d. 1737)


German Baroque painter from Silesia. The biography of Ferdinand Richter is only partially known. We know he was in Rome in 1727 where he received to go home. He was also active in Florence. An altarpiece discovered in Aschbach suggests that he also worked in the abbey of Ebrach.

We owe him a portrait of the Baroque composer Francesco Maria Veracini, which was etched later in copper as well as the altarpiece in the Catholic church of the Assumption in Aschbach.
