Jonas Umbach, painter, designer, and engraver, was born at Augsburg about 1624. He was cabinet painter to the Bishop of Augsburg, and produced many landscapes with cattle, also kitchen pieces, feathered game, and a few historical subjects in chiaroscuro. He also etched 230 plates of biblical, historical, and mythological scenes and landscapes. Among these there are:

Christ on the Mount of Olives
Trains of Children and Nereids
Two Duck-shooters lying in Wait
Landscapes with Ruins
Bacchanals and Infant Sports

He died in Augsburg in 1693.

There was a younger Jonas Umbach, but there are no particulars respecting him, except that he drew portraits.
