Friedrich Bernhard Werner was a German printmaker, draftsman, and chronicler. During his youth, he was largely itinerant, finding work wherever he could. Eventually, he settled in Augsburg, where he started compiling views for the town’s successful publishing houses (including Martin Engelbrecht, Johann Christian Leopold, and Jeremias Wolff). Werner specialized in panoramic views of towns, and he traveled around Europe, producing almost a hundred views for his Augsburg patrons. Later in life, Werner produced an extensive topographical work on the Duchy of Silesia, which included over a thousand hand-colored ink drawings and maps.
