C.W.E. Dietrich, also known as Dietricy, was appointed court painter to Frederick-Augustus II and later, inspector of the Gemäldegalerie in Dresden. Near the end of his life, he accepted the position of professor of landscape painting at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste.
The Irish collector William Horatio Crawford (1812-1888) brought this set of Dietrich etchings together, most in their first state. A generous patron of the arts, Crawford lived in Ballinure, outside Cork on the Mahon peninsula, where he built a significant botanical garden and library.
