Carl Kronberger - also: Karl Kronberger - (* March 7, 1841 in Freistadt, Upper Austria; † October 27, 1921 in Munich) was an Austrian painter.
Carl Kronberger was born in Freistadt as son of a landlord on March 7, 1841. 1869 he went to Munich and received his formal training with Hermann Dyck, Hermann Anschütz and Johann Georg Hiltensperger at the Academy of Munich. Here he perfected his ability to paint the human figure and began to specialize in portrait and genre painting. He was noted, during his lifetime, for finely detailed miniature portrait paintings often featuring the head of a Tyrolean gentleman. However, he also painted a number of ‘true’ genre paintings. These tiny masterpieces allowed the artist to display his immense talent and, are even today, sought after by collectors of Academic art.
During his lifetime he exhibited a number of works at the various exhibition-halls in Europe and won medals at exhibitions in Vienna (1873) and Munich (1901). Among his exhibited works were:'Law Proceedings' (1873)
'Last Will' (1875)
'At the Baptismal Feast' (1876)
'Aunt is Coming' (1876)
'Theft Discovered too Late' (1880).
