Johann Ludwig Aberli
Johann Ludwig Aberli (1723 – 17 October 1786) was a Swiss painter and etcher.
Aberli was born in Winterthur. He is primarily known for his landscapes of Switzerland, first etched in contours then painted or colorized. This style is later to be known as the Aberli manner and found many imitators, such as Heinrich Rieter Senior, Franz Niklaus König or Johann Jakob Bidermann. He trained Samuel Hieronymus Grimm. He is said to have trained with J. Erim in Bern. He died in Bern, aged 53.
