Adam Johann Braun (1748 – 1827) was an Austrian painter, engraver and graphic artist. He was born in Vienna. From 1762 he studied painting under Frister and Martin van Meytens at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, and became its member in 1789 with the painting “Zauber der Musik”. Adam Johann Braun was especially known for his genre motifs that were often of gallant high society scenes (often painted on copper) in style of the Dutch 17th-century masters. He died in Vienna in 1827.
He painted just one spanking artwork, but it is such a nice one I could not resist sharing with you here.
