Wilhelm Kray (German artist, 1828-1889)

The Germans have achieved some of their greatest successes in the art of figure painting with subjects derived from that legendary lore in which their country is so rich. Among the artists whom this world of phantoms has enchanted, probably the foremost is William Kray. He was born in Berlin, and began his studies there, afterward residing for a long time in Rome and Venice. Ultimately he returned to Germany and ssettled in Vienna, where he speedily won distinction.
