Biographical Information

Wilhelm Loeillot (ca. 1827-1876) was a German draftsman, lithographer and publisher, active between 1840 and 1876 in Berlin. He illustrated and published numerous works related to architecture.

Ludwig Burger was born in Krakow in 1825. He dabbled in lithography before formaly studying at the Berlin Art Academy, meanwhile illustrating books. For a brief time he worked in the studio of Karl Wilhelm Kolbe the Younger, and then spent a year as a draftsman for a playing car factory in 1846. He then embarked abroad in 1852 to Antwerp and then Paris, where he studied under Thomas Couture. He is best known for his drawings and print, though he pursued decorative work (such as painting and designs for glass windows) beginning in 1869. In 1872, he travelled to Italy to study Renaissance designs. Burger died in Berlin in 1884.
