Chodowiecki, Daniel Nikolaus
Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki (dä´nēĕl nē´kōlous khôdôvyĕts´kē), 1726–1801, German painter and engraver, b. Danzig. He was the most popular illustrator of his day in Prussia. The Departure of Jean Calas (1767) is his most famous painting. It is as an engraver, however, that Chodowiecki is best known. His book illustrations include designs for Schiller's Räuber, Cervantes's Don Quixote, Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield, and Shakespeare's works.
