Johann Baptist Reiter Genre painter

 Johann Baptist Reiter (28 May 1813, Linz - 10 January 1890, Vienna) was an Austrian portrait and genre painter of the Biedermeier period.

His father was a master carpenter. He spent three years as an apprentice at his father's company, painting furniture, signs and crosses.
Encouraged by the lithographer and art dealer, Josef Hafner, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
His teachers there included Leopold Kupelwieser and Thomas Ender.

After 1830, he largely earned his living as a porcelain painter.
Probably as the result of a recommendation by Kupelweiser, he was awarded a scholarship by the Upper Austrian Landstand that enabled him to continue his studies from 1834-1837.

During this time he also exhibited and won the Lampi-Preis for model drawing in 1836. He was married in 1839.
Originally, he did genre and historical scenes, but he decided to switch to portraits and soon became so popular that he was able to purchase a large house in Vienna with a four-horse carriage and a Moor as a servant.

During the Revolution of 1848 he sided with the revolutionaries. Possibly due to the trouble this caused, his wife left him in 1850.
From then until 1870, he was a regular participant at the exhibitions of numerous Austrian art societies.
It is unclear if he was divorced or his first wife died, but he was remarried in 1866.
His new wife's extravagance eventually forced him to take more orders than he could handle, as well as turn to making copies of the Old Masters.

She died in 1889, and he died the following year. He was interred at the Zentralfriedhof.

In 2013, a major retrospective was jointly hosted by the Schlossmuseum Linz and the Nordico Stadtmuseum.
It included over 170 works gathered from museums in Vienna and Budapest and private collections. | Source: © Wikipedia

Johann Baptist Reiter (Linz, 28 maggio 1813 - Vienna, 10 gennaio 1890) è stato un ritrattista e pittore di genere Austriaco del periodo Biedermeier.

Suo padre era un maestro falegname. Ha trascorso tre anni come apprendista presso l'azienda del padre, dipingendo mobili, insegne e croci.
Incoraggiato dal litografo e mercante d'arte Josef Hafner, si iscrive all'Accademia di Belle Arti di Vienna.
I suoi insegnanti includevano Leopold Kupelwieser e Thomas Ender.

Dopo il 1830, si guadagnò in gran parte da vivere come pittore di porcellane.
Probabilmente a seguito di una raccomandazione di Kupelweiser, ricevette una borsa di studio dal Landstand dell'Alta Austria che gli permise di continuare i suoi studi dal 1834-1837.

Durante questo periodo espose anche e vinse il Lampi-Preis per il modellismo nel 1836. Si sposò nel 1839.
All'inizio realizzava scene di genere e storiche, ma decise di passare ai ritratti e presto divenne così popolare da poter acquistare una grande casa a Vienna con una carrozza a quattro cavalli e un Moro come servitore.
Durante la Rivoluzione del 1848 si schierò con i rivoluzionari.

Forse a causa dei problemi che ciò causò, sua moglie lo lasciò nel 1850.
Da allora fino al 1870 partecipò regolarmente alle mostre di numerose società artistiche austriache.
Non è chiaro se fosse divorziato o se la sua prima moglie morì, ma si risposò nel 1866.

La stravaganza della sua nuova moglie alla fine lo costrinse a prendere più ordini di quanti ne potesse gestire, oltre a girare per fare copie degli Antichi Maestri.
Morì nel 1889 e lui morì l'anno successivo.
Fu sepolto al Zentralfriedhof.

Nel 2013, un'importante retrospettiva è stata ospitata congiuntamente dallo Schlossmuseum Linz e dal Nordico Stadtmuseum.
Comprendeva oltre 170 opere raccolte da musei di Vienna e Budapest e collezioni private. | Source: © British Wikipedia
