Boisseree, Sulpiz, 1783-1854, German architect and antiquary. Together with his brother Melchior he made a magnificent collection of German pictures. This collection he sold in 1827 to the King of Bavaria for 120,000 thalers, and it is now in the picture gallery at Munich. Melchior Boisseree, brother of the above (1786-1851), discovered the means of painting on glass with the brush alone, and has copied by this process the best of the pictures above mentioned.
