Born in 1787, Domenico Quaglio designed the Hohenschwangau palace. His family originated from Northern Italian artists. He emigrated to Germany where he worked in Mannheim. As a trained engraver, Quaglio concentrated on portraying medieval buildings and relics and made a living selling prints of his engravings. Later, he settled in Munich and worked as a painter for a theater. From 1833 onwards, Quaglio supervised the construction of Hohenschwangau and he died in 1837, before it’s completion.
