Background: Wilhelm August Lebrecht Amberg was born on 25 February 1822 in Berlin.

Education: From 1839 to 1842 he was in the studio of Carl Joseph Veags work a year later, when Leaon Cogniet in Paris

Achievements: Amberg devoted himself almost exclusively to the genre, both the gay and the grave. His themes were always pleasant and corresponded to contemporary tastes. Happy his work was in publications like The Gazebo or “Over land and sea,” reprinted. Except for an early religious work for Gertraud Church in Berlin and some landscapes, Amberg limited almost exclusively on narrative themes. His paintings were characterized by harmonious coloring, intensity of feeling and poetic charm.

From those of the serious genre especially his are solace in music and the widow consolation , of the bright Love Post , The smoking maid , Naschkätzchen and lecture from Goethe’s “Werther” highlight (a major work from 1870 in the collection of the National Gallery in Berlin). From 1897 comes the apparently belonging to the Werther period, slightly sentimental picture “The Farewell”, the Amberg a year later at the Great Berlin Art Exhibition showed.
