A Dead Fox And Goose At The Foot Of A Tree With A Hound In A Landscape

Peter Caulitz (c.1650–1719) was a German painter of landscapes and animals, especially domestic fowl. Born in Berlin, he studied in Italy, and was a court painter to Frederick the Great.

Life

Caulitz was born to poor parents in Berlin[1] in about 1650.[2] He served as a drummer in a regiment of dragoons before becoming an assistant to a young painter who took him to Rome where he developed his skills as an artist.[1]

He was back in Berlin by 1681,[3] and in 1695 was appointed court painter to Frederick I of Prussia.[3][4] He made a second visit to Italy in the company of his fellow court painter, Samuel Theodor Gericke.[4] He retained his post at court until his death in Berlin in 1719.[2]

His work consists of landscapes, including views of Prussian royal castles, and pictures of animals, especially hens and turkeys.[4] His animal paintings show the influence of the Dutch artists Melchior d'Hondecoeter and Jan Weenix. The Berlin Museum has a scene representing a poultry-yard by him; there are other examples at Potsdam and at Brunswick.[2]

Caulitz also worked in mosaic and restored paintings. His widow continued the restoration business after his death.[1]'
