ENDER, Johann Nepomuk, an Austrian painter, born in Vienna, Nov. 3, 1793, died there, March 16, 1854. He studied at the Vienna academy, and when he had hardly attained his majority won its four leading prizes. He accompanied the Hungarian count Szecheni on a journey through Greece and Turkey in 1818. In 1820 he went to Italy, and in Florence and Rome produced a number of works from Biblical and historical subjects. In 1827 he returned to Vienna, after spending a year in Paris. The more noteworthy of his works are his great cartoon of the entry of Christ into Jerusalem; “Judith,” exhibited in 1824; and several frescoes of much merit, one of which, the last of his important productions, is in a chapel of the church of St. Stephen in Vienna.
