August or Auguste Emil Braun (April 19, 1809, in Gotha, Germany – September 12, 1856, in Rome) was a German archaeologist.
Braun initially studied archaeology and philosophy in Göttingen, then continued his education at the University of Munich and in Dresden. In 1833, he accepted Eduard Gerhard's invitation to Berlin, where he made the decision to devote his career to art history.
In the autumn of 1833, he accompanied Gerhard to Rome, where in a short amount of time, he became a librarian, and subsequently secretary to the German Archaeological Institute. At the institute, he established a galvano-plastic workshop, from which issued many reproductions of antique art objects and casts of modern works.Il giudizio di Paride (Paris, 1838) – The Judgement of Paris.
