Johann Georg Trautmann was a German painter and etcher. He was born in Zweibrücken in 1713, and he died at Frankfurt-sur-Main in 1769. He was a student of Ferdinand Bellon in Zweibrücken and, in Frankfurt, he studied with Hugo Schlegel (1679-1737) and Gabriel Kiesewetter (1711-1753). In 1761, he was named painter to the court of the Elector Palatine. According to Bénézit, Trautmann was known especially for his paintings of night scenes lit by fires.
Among his works listed in Bénézit are images of musicians -- a bagpiper, a lutenist, a family of singers, and a family of musicians. There are also genre scenes of an inn, soldiers playing cards, or a peasant family at table. Trautmann also painted portraits. Though he is said to have been an etcher, only six etchings by Trautmann are mentioned.
