Erich Frantz (1842-1903)

Erich Frantz was a professor of history of art at the university of Breslau. He was in fact educated as a theologian and a lawyer, but he gained fame and respect thanks to his amateur publications on history of painting, especially Italian, e.g. Fra Bartolommeo della Porta, Studie über die Renaissance and Das heilige Abendmahl des Leonardo da Vinci. The opus magnum of his scientific career was a 3 volume work Geschichte der christlichen Malerei (A History of Christian Painting).
