Heinrich Reichert (1801-1893) was a painter, lithographer and photographer, father of the painter and graphic artist Karl Reichert. From 1814 he was working on the Academy of Fine Arts, where he was until 1817. In 1819 he was a student of J.B.v. Lampi d. A. and devoted himself mainly to historical painting. In the following years study tours have taken him to Switzerland and Paris, where he has also worked as a lithographer. From 1834 on Reichert lived in Vienna, 1839 he moved to Graz and worked here as a lithographer for the Institute Lampi. In addition to these activities in Graz, he also had a photo studio.
