Zeno Diemer’s name is today synonymous with the accurate portrayal of shipping off various Mediterranean coasts. However, following his training at the Munich Academy he first established his name and reputation as a painter of battle scenes. Most famously, in 1894, over the course of six months, he worked in Innsbruck on a one thousand square metre circular panorama, known as the Innsbrucker Riesenrundgemälde, of the battles of Bergisel (1809), in which forces led by Andreas Hofer defeated the armies of Napoleon and the Kingdom of Bavaria.
