Eduard Ender (3 March 1822 Rome – 28 December 1883 London) was an Austrian painter. He is the son of Johann Ender and is noted alike for his historical and genre works, among which are Francis I in the Studio of Cellini; Shakespeare Reading “Macbeth” before the Court of Elizabeth; La Corbeille de Mariage; and A Game of Chess, as well as a painting of the famous German scientist Alexander von Humboldt and his scientist travelling companion Aimé Bonpland. Humboldt did not like the painting, since the scientific instruments were not accurately depicted.[1]
