REDLICH, HENRY:

Polish engraver in copper; born at Lask, government of Piotrkow, 1840; died at Berlin Nov. 7, 1884. He went at an early age to Breslau, where he entered the public school. At fourteen he returned to Russia and became a government pupil in the Warsaw school of fine arts. In 1861, after winning a prize, he went to Munich and Dresden to continue his studies. From 1866 to 1873 he lived at Vienna, and then returned to Warsaw. In 1876 the government appointed him a member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Fine Arts. Being disappointed, on account of his religion, in his expectation of a professorship, Redlich went to Paris, where his engravings won for him a gold medal at one of the exhibitions. Overtaken by illness at Paris, he was removed to Berlin, where, as stated above, he died.

Redlich's most important engravings are: "The Tempi Madonna," from Raffael: "The Entrance of the Polish Army into Harthausen in 1659," from Brandt; "The Preacher Peter Skarg Before the Polish King Sigismund III.," from Mateiko; "Copernicus Expounding His System of the World to the Astronomers of Rome," from Gerson. Redlich occupied himself also with drawing, especially portraits and Alpine scenes.
