Portrait of an old...

Johann Carl Loth (1632 – 6 October 1698) was a German Baroque painter, born in Munich but active most of his life in Venice.

Biography

He is also called Johann Karl, Karel, Carlotto, and Carlo Lotti.[1] According to Houbraken he was one of three grand masters of art called "Karel" (the other two were Karel Dujardin and Karel Marat.[2] He was the son and pupil of Johann Ulrich Loth (1590–1662)[1] and was possibly influenced by Giovan Battista Langetti. He was commissioned to paint for the emperor Leopold I in Vienna. He worked together with Pietro Liberi in Venice, where he was during the years 1663-1698.[1] His brother Franz Loth was also a painter in Venice and Germany.

He had numerous pupils including Michael Wenzel Halbax, Santo Prunati, the painters from Laufen Johann Michael Rottmayr & Hans Adam Weissenkircher, Daniel Seiter, and (Baron) Peter Strudel.[1]
Popularity among Dutch artists

He attracted well-to-do artists who made trips especially to visit his studio, such as Cornelis de Bruijn and Jan van Bunnik. He became friends with the painters Willem Drost [2] and Jan Vermeer van Utrecht.[3] He is buried in the San Luca church in Venice.[4]

Museums that own works by Loth include the Art Institute of Chicago and the Bergen Art Museum in Bergen, Norway (Martyr).
