Ferdinand KELLER
(Karlsruhe 1842 - Baden Baden 1922)

Coming from a large family of artists of the German Black Forest, he moved very young towards painting and after studying drawings he traveled to Europe: Austria, Switzerland and Italy where under the spell of the great masters of the Renaissance he enriches his painting with pigments of colors and the grace of Michelangelo, Titian, Raphael ...

In 1867, he met his first success with the death of Philip II exhibited at the Universal Exhibition of 1867 in Paris.

Germany at the time is composed of several kingdom or duchy, the Grand Duchy of Baden was created in 1535, the family of Margraviat of Baden reigned until 1918 and there remained very popular and devoted a part of its fortune in the constitution of one of the most beautiful collections of works of art in Germany, Frederick II encouraged Ferdinand Keller by buying many works including his portrait in full foot exposed to the palace of Mannheim and passing him many orders of decoration of the palace of Baden.

Ferdinand Keller became professor of the famous Karlsruhe School of Painting, his success was nicknamed 'Makart Badoit' in comparison with the great Austrian artist Hans Makart, the kaiser Wilhelm commissioned him many works including the famous painting representing the Imperial family (photo 5), the emperor offered to ennoble him in 1912, Ferdinand Keller refused this honor.
After the 1890s he took part in the symbolist movement joining the painters Caspar David Friedrich, Arnold Bocklin and Puvis de Chavannes.
