Kornbeck was an architect and successful architectural painter. He lived in the 1860s for five and a half years in Italy, a country that would provide him with his favourite subjects. He also painted Egyptian views.

At the age of 31, the very day of his wedding he had a terrible accident: he lost one eye and he risked loosing the second one.
Luckily he was able to continue painting.

The Temple of Agrigento is one of the best-preserved Greek temples, because it had been changed into a church in the 6th century AD.
