Martin Knoller

Born in Tyrol and educated in Innsbruck and Vienna, Knoller moved to Rome where met Winckelmann and Mengs. He met Count Firmian in Naples in 1758, and when Firmian was appointed Minister Plenipotentiary of Austrian Lombardy, he summoned Knoller to Milan where he became court painter and, as of 1792, professor of drawing at the Accademia di Brera. This signed and dated Self-portrait, painted when Knoller was seventy-eight, was intended for Brera’s “Cabinet of Painters’ Portraits”.
