Now we have discussed the landscape art in Munich in-depth as a school example, we can treat the still-life painters somewhat more succinctly. There are only two who can put up a claim for our attention. The first is Johann Amandus Wink (1748/54-1817), whose flower paintings partly follow the usual manner of Jan van Huijsum and Rachel Ruysch [i][i][i], and partly emulate the Flemish flower garlands of a Jan Pauwel Gillemans II [i].

The second is Theodor Mattenheimer (1787-1856) [i][i], who, as gallery supervisor of Augsburg, Bamberg and Munich, had plenty of opportunity to get acquainted with the Dutch masters in this discipline.
