TIECK, Christian Friedrich
(b. 1776, Berlin, d. 1851, Berlin)

Biography

German sculptor, a pupil of Johann Gottfried Schadow.

Based on a concept by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, Tieck created the tomb of General Gerhard von Scharnhorst at Berlin's Invalidenfriedhof in 1822. He also created a bust of Wilhelm Heinrich Wackenroder and a lion made of bronze after a model by Christian Daniel Rauch. Tieck's monument to Nicolaus Copernicus was erected posthumously in Thorn.
