This is Carl Hasenpflug

Carl Hasenpflug (1802–1858) was a German artist who specialized in landscape painting, primarily the rendering of architecture.

Born in Berlin, Hasenpflug was first apprenticed as a shoemaker to his father, then to the decorative painter Carl Gropius. By 1822 he had become known as a painter of architectural subjects, with particular focus upon the representation of medieval German churches, in which architectural details were first drawn in pen, then glazed higher than with oil paint. Favorite subjects included the cathedrals of Magdeburg and Halberstadt, where he lived from 1828.

After 1838 Hasenpflug concentrated upon paintings of snow-covered ruins that collective factual observation considering fantasy. “Snowdrifts in the Cloister of the Halberstadt Cathedral” (Städtisches Museum, Halberstadt), displays a more painterly aerate than previous renderings, and evidences the artist’s salutation not abandoned to the subject’s visual appeal, but along with suggests the vulnerability of the medieval structure and the spiritual quay it represents. Other noted works supplement two views of Cologne Cathedral (1832–33), Erfurt Cathedral (1827), “Mediæval Castle Yard” (1842, Schwerin Gallery), and “Ruined Chapel” (Stettin Museum).

He died in Halberstadt in 1858.
