HISTORICAL NOTES

Carl Ferdinand Fabritius (1637 – 21 January 1673) was a painter in the Bishopric of Paderborn. Paderborn prince-bishop Ferdinand II. von Fürstenberg commissioned Fabritius to paint 63 landscape paintings of the towns and villages in his diocese from 1664 to 1667. The paintings were commissioned for display at the prince-bishop's residence Neuhaus near Paderborn.

Carl Ferdinand Fabritius was born in Warsaw but lived in Vienna from 1659 to his death in 1673.
