Preissler was a painter and engraver born in 1666 in Nuremberg. He painted mainly portraits and biblical scenes and is now probably best known for his work about life drawing titled, Die durch Theorie erfundene Practic, oder Gründlich-verfasste Reguln (The theory invented by practice, or Multiple-authored Rules). More about him at this post: How to Draw People - Johann Daniel Preissler.
