Ainmuller, the reviver of the art of glass-painting in Germany, was born at Munich, 1807, and having devoted himself early to this art, became in 1828 director of the royal factory. His process of enamelling a design painted upon the glass was a recurrence to the practice of the Renaissance, and speedily found favour. Specimens of Ainmuller's work may be seen in the cathedrals of Cologne, Ratisbon, Glasgow, and St. Paul's, and in Notre Dame at Munich. He was a skilful painter in oils, especially of architectural interiors, and his pictures of St. George's Chapel, Windsor, and Westminster Abbey are fine works. He died in 1870.
