Georg Heinrich Busse (17 July 1810 – 26 February 1868), a landscape painter and engraver, was born at Bennenmühlen, near Hanover. He studied drawing under Giesewell, and then proceeded, with royal assistance, to Dresden, where he learnt engraving below Stolzel, and obtained the first prize for that art in 1834. For the next-door ten years he was studying from nature in Italy below Nicolas Poussin, Claude, and Koch, visiting Greece, however, in 1843. On his reward he was appointed engraver to the Hanoverian court and library, but pursued painting also from 1847.
