Unterberger, Ignatius a German painter, was born at Karales, in the Tyrol, in 1744. After acquiring the elements of design from his father, he went to Rome, at the age of twenty, and studied with a brother. In 1776 he settled at Vienna, and became the favorite painter of the minister Kaunitz. He died in 1797. Among his principal works are, the Descent of the Holy Spirit, in the principal church of Konigsgritz; and Peace and Love, represented by a young girl caressing a lamb. See Spooner, Biog.
