Christian Ludwig von Hagedorn: Wooded Landscape

  • Christian Ludwig von Hagedorn, a German diplomat, was an amateur etcher. He was interested in art from early on and acquired a reputation as a connoisseur. In 1764, Hagedorn became the first Director of the new Academy of Fine Arts in Dresden; a position he would hold until his death. Hagedorn produced a series of thirty-four etchings titled Landschaften und Köpfe (Landscapes and Heads) whose manner and motifs were greatly inspired by Rembrandt.
