Neustadt bei Magdeburg 1852 - Berlin 1938
Relatively little is known of the artist and draughtsman Konrad Böse, who was a follower (and may have been a pupil) of Adolph von Menzel. Böse worked in Berlin and began to establish his reputation around 1885. In 1909 he is known to have exhibited a large number of drawings in Berlin. He was also active as a professor at the Berlin Academy of Arts, where among his pupils was the painter Erich Wolfsfeld.
