Franz Schutz was a member of one of the great 18th Century dynasties of painters and son of Christian Georg Schutz I who created highly romantic Italianate and Rhineland views. Franz travelled to Italy to study after receiving initial tuition from his father. It is said that his visit to Switzerland and Italy had a beneficial effect on his work. Sadly, his career was all too brief as he died at the age of 30. He is probably better known as a painter than a silhouette artist. His work can be found in Museums in Berne, Graz, Frankfurt
