Carl August Reinhardt (also referred to as Karl Reinhardt; born 25. April 1818 in Leipzig, Germany; died 11. August 1877 in Radebeul, Germany) was a German author, painter, graphic artist, and caricaturist.

Life[edit]

Reinhardt studied art in Leipzig, Dresden, and Munich, under the tutelage of Johan Christian Dahl and Albert Zimmermann, among others. During the 1840s and 1850s, he lived a bohemian wandering life as a landscape painter, author, and caricaturist. During this time, he contributed to the well-known magazines Kladderadatsch, Die Gartenlaube, and Illustrirte Zeitung.

In 1848, Reinhardt contributed to the Fliegende Blätter, in an issue titled "Meister Lapp and his apprentice Pips." The original issue was incomplete, and a complete version appeared in an 1851 book version published by Braun & Schneider. Reinhardt helped pioneer the comics genre in Deutscher Bilderbogen für Jung und Alt, which was inspired by the Munich Bilderbogen.

Reinhardt made his living illustrating books. Some of his best-known lithographs appear in volumes 2-4 of To America! by Friedrich Gerstäcker, published in 1855.

By the 1860s, Reinhardt had made a name for himself, but years of hard living had taken a toll on his health. Ill and still poor, he moved to Dresden and tried his hand at being an author, playwright, and journal editor (Der Calculator an der Elbe). In 1877, he opened an eponymous tavern in Radebeul. The tavern survived Reinhardt's death, known under the abbreviated name "Zum Calculator."
