RUGENDAS, Johann Moritz, German artist, born in Augsburg, 29 March, 1802; died in Weilheim, Wurtemberg, 29 May, 1858. He devoted himself more particularly to illustrating with his pencil the life and scenery of Mexico and South America, where he travelled at various times between 1821 and 1847. The sketches that he made in Brazil were lithographed and published with German text (Paris, 1827-'35), and his portfolios of South American sketches and studies were purchased by the government at Munich. His oil-painting, "Columbus taking Possession of the New World" (1855), is in the New Pinakothek, Munich.
