Philipp Jakob Becker (1759 Pforzheim - 1829 Erlenbad, Baden) began his studies under Karl Friedrich Autenrieth at the Karlsruhe Drawing School. From 1777 to 1784, on scholarship of the Duchy Baden, he studied in Rome first under Anton Raffael Mengs (1777-1779) and then (from 1779) under Anton Maron. He counted among his friends in Rome sculptor Alexander Trippel.
In 1783-1784 Becker sojourned in Florence, Venice and Naples. In 1784 he returned to Karlsruhe (then capital of the Duchy Baden) and was in 1785 appointed there a Court Artist and Director of the Royal Collections. He was also an influential teacher and head of his Alma mater - the Drawing School of Karlsruhe. He also enjoyed access to the collection assembled by then recently deceased Markgravin, Caroline Luise.
In 1788 he was in Dresden, where he made acquaintance with great portraitist Anton Graff.
