Heinrich Ambros Eckert, a German painter of battle-pieces, was born at W├╝rzburg in 1807, and was at first instructed by Fessel. In 1825 he attended the Academy at Munich, and afterwards visited the Tyrol and France. Between 1835 and 1840. in conjunction with Monten and Schelver, he published a work upon the German federal army, with two hundred coloured lithographic plates; and another illustrating the return of the Russian troops to their homes. He died at Munich in 1840, while engaged upon a picture of the great review near that city before the Emperor of Russia. Besides genre subjects and battle-pieces he painted marine views.
