Wilhelm Boettner (1752 Ziegenhain - 1805 Kassel) was the last important court painter and the director of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kassel. He began his studies in 1767 and was a pupil of Kassel artist Johann Heinrich Tischbein the Elder. In 1772 he moved to Dusseldorf; in 1773 stayed in Paris; in 1777 settled in Rome, where he spent his time copying Raphael's works. In 1781, via Vienna and Dresden, he came back to Kassel, where he became a member of the Academy. In 1783/84 he was again in Paris, where he painted portraits of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. In 1784 Friedrich II of Hesse-Kassel appointed him court artist and professor and director of the Kassel Academy.
