Ferdinand Olivier

1785 (Dessau, Germany) – 1841 (Munich)

Friedrich Olivier was his brother (an elder brother, Heinrich, was also a painter). David and Runge were met in Dresden. The two Oliviers met Koch in Vienna and were deeply influenced by him; Schlegel was also a close acquaintance there. Schnorr von Carolsfeld was a friend and colleague in the Nazarene group.
