Balthasar Anton Dunker
Balthasar Anton Dunker (15 January 1746 – 2 April 1807) was a German landscape painter and etcher, born at Saal, near Stralsund. He was a pupil of Jakob Philipp Hackert and of Vien, and was more distinguished as an etcher than as a painter. His works are after Roos, Van der Does, Hackert, and Schutz, and consist of costumes and manners of the French before the Revolution, illustrations of books, and other miscellaneous subjects. Among them were some excellent landscapes, as the 'Environs of Berne,' and views of Leghorn. He died in Berne, aged 61.
