Danneker, Johann Heinrich, a German sculptor, was born at Stuttgardt in 1758, and studied at Ludwigsburg, Paris, and finally Rome, where he had the good fortune to form the acquaintance of Canova, Goethe, and Herder. On his return to Germany he was in 1790 created professor of sculpture in the Academy of Stuttgardt by the Duke of Wurtemburg. His female busts are especially deserving of praise, as well as his Christ, Faith, Ariadne on the Leopard, and his busts of Schiller, Gluck, and others. He died in 1841.
