(1753 Salzburg - 1829 Prague) The Emmaus Meal painting of the late Rococo period, with a dramatically depicted scene of the recognition of Christ by the two disciples. It is based on the famous Rubens painting from 1611, which is reversed. Bergler initially studied in Passau, then with the support of the Prince-Bishop, he went to Milan in 1776 and Rome in 1781, where he joined the Mengs circle and studied the great Italian masters (including Raphael and Domenichino). In 1786, he returned to Passau, where he became a "cabinet painter" in the episcopal residence. After Bergler had already painted church pictures in Passau since 1774, he created, from 1786 onwards, with numerous commissions, over 200 church pictures in Passau, Lower Bavaria, and neighboring Austria. In 1800, Bergler was appointed director of the newly founded Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. There, he also created numerous altar paintings for Bohemian churches.
