Eduard Grützner (German artist, 1846 –1925)

Eduard Theodor Ritter von Grützner Born into a land-owning family in Upper Silesia on May 26, 1846, he showed an early interest in painting and drawing and became well known for his figure and genre paintings, especially those of monks. In 1864, with the help of an architect Hirschberg, he left home for art education at the private school of Herman Dyck in Munich.
