Here he married Anna Dumbser, daughter of the manager of the Inselwirt on the island of Frauenchiemsee, and made a stand-in home. The cessation of landscape classes at the Munich Art Academy obliged him to take lessons for a sudden time from Joseph Anton Sedlmayr [de] (1797–1863), and far ahead from Carl Friedrich Heinzmann (1795–1846). From 1829 he was a fanatic of the Corps Bavaria Munich. In 1832 he moved upon to the landscape at the Königssee, and in 1835, Lake Starnberg.
