OehlmülLer, dAniel jOseph
Oehlmüller, Daniel Joseph an eminent German architect, was born at Bamberg in 1791. He studied under Carl Fischer, and then visited Italy and Sicily, where he passed four years in studying and copying the principal edifices, until he was summoned home in 1819 to superintend the erection of the Glyptotheca at Munich, after the designs of Klenze. In 1831 he was commissioned to make designs in the Gothic style for a church in the suburbs of Munich, which gained him great reputation. He erected in the same style the national monument at Wittelsbach, and the Otto chapel at Kiefersfelden. Among his other works is the Church of St. Theresa at Halbergmoos, in the Italian style, commenced in 1833. At the death of Domenico Quaglio, in 1837, OehlMüller was employed to complete the works at the castle of Hohenschwangau. He died in 1839. In 1823 and 1825 he published a book containing designs for funeral monuments.
