DEATH OF DANNECKER THE SCULPTOR.—Stutgard, Dec. 9.—Yesterday died here, after a short illness, the well known John Heinrich DANNECKER, the Nestor of German sculptors. He had but a short time previously completed his 84th year. Stutgard was his native town, where he was born on the 15th of October, 1758, of poor parents. In spite of the disinclination of his parents, he determined, when very young, to turn his attention to the plastic arts, and by a personal application to Duke Charles of Wurtemberg, in whose stud his father was employed, he succeeded in gaining admission, in 1771, to the military artistical academy at the "Solitude," a royal castle near Stutgard, where pupils were instructed free in music, painting, and sculpture. The instruction he received here, however, was but a faulty one. It was in his 16th year that he carried off the prize for a model of Milo of Cortona. He next executed the Caryatides and other statues which adorn parts of the royal residence at Stutgard. It was while studying in this academy that he made the acquaintance of his fellow-townsman, SCHILLER, and of this friendship a lasting monument remains in the statue, which he afterwards took from life, of the illustrious poet. He left the academy in 1780, at the same time as the poet, and attained the situation of court sculptor, with the paltry salary of 300 florins, or about £25 per annum. The following year he was permitted to visit Paris, receiving, however, no further pecuniary assistance than that his salary was raised, in the second year of his absence, to 400 florins. DANNECKER's style was formed principally on the antique. His compositions are full of truth, life, and nature. His most distinguished pupil is WAGNER, at Rome. For some years he had ceased from all active employment, and had fallen into a state of second childhood and oblivion.
