Artists and Engravers: After Richard Kn�tel (1857-1914). Kn�tel was born in Glogau in 1857. His father, August Kn�tel, was an art teacher and gave him lessons in drawing and painting from an early age. In this time, Kn�tel developed an interest in military fashion and history. After his studies, he began collecting books concerning European military history (it is believed that by his death he owned over 9000 titles), and began work on his most famous piece; Uniformenkunde, a huge collection of plates concerning the armies of Europe from the 17th century to 1914.
