Johann Jacob Schublers (1689-1741), German Artist, Engraver, Architect and Mathematician, studying under Jacob von Sandrart (1630-1708) and Georg Christoph Eimmart (1638-1705). He was admitted as a foreign member of the Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1734 and in 1736 was named the Greater Council of the City of Nuremberg. His works are known for esquisite architectural details often overloaded by decorative elements such as floral threads intended not for direct implementation rather extract very different suggestions from a single template.
