Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kunstakademie D sseldorf, formerly Staatliche Kunstakademie D sseldorf, is the Arts Academy of the city of D sseldorf. It is well-known for having produced many famous artists, such as Joseph Beuys, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke, Thomas Demand, Udo Dziersk and Andreas Gursky. In the stairway of its Main-Entrance are engraved the Words: "F r unsere Studenten nur das Beste" ("For our Students only the Best"). The school was founded by Lambert Krahe in 1762 as a school of drawing. In 1773, it became the "Kurf rstlich-Pf lzische Academie der Maler, Bildhauer- und Baukunst" (Elector of Palatine's Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture). During the Napoleonic Wars, the earl's art collection was inherited by the Wittelsbach family and moved to Munich, prompting the Prussian government-who had annexed the D sseldorf region after Napoleon had surrendered-to change it into a Royal Arts Academy in D sseldorf, in 1819. In the 1850s, the Kunstakademie D sseldorf became internationally-renowned, with many students coming from Scandinavia, Russia and the USA to learn, amongst other things, the genre and landscape painting associated with the "D sseldorf school."show more
