RAUPP, roup, Karl (1837—). A German landscape and genre painter, born at Darmstadt. After studying under Jakob Becker at the Städel Institute in Frankfort, he became a pupil and zealous follower of Piloty in Munich (1860-65), where he soon gathered a small school. From 1868 to 1878 he was professor at the School of Arts in Nuremberg, and after that at the Academy in Munich. His finely colored scenes from fishermen's and peasant life around Chiem Lake, which form his favorite subjects, show equal devotedness in the treatment of landscape and figures, and include: “In the Face of the Storm” (1885, Dresden Gallery); “Peace” (1889, National Gallery, Berlin); “Serious Meeting” (1889, Münster Gallery); and “Chiem Lake” (1898, Reichstags-Gebäude, Berlin). He published a Katechismus der Malerei (3d ed, 1898).
