The etchers who worked in other parts of Germany falleven less easily into definite groups than .those of Berlin.Ferdinand Kobell (1740—1799) studied under Wille inParis, and worked at Mannheim and Munich, Hisetchings are usually small landscapes, in which he followsRuisdael, Everdingen, and Waterloo, always viewingnature as though with the eyes of his predecessor.
