Eduard von Grützner was an important German genre painter who lived in Haidhausen. He was born 1846 in Silesia and moved 1864 to Munich. There he studied at a private school under Herman Dyck.
In 1883 he moved to his villa in Haidhausen built by the architect Leonhard Romeis. The street where the villa stands was named after him to “Grütznerstrasse”. In his later years he was divorced from his wife and began collecting Asian art objects. He also learned Japanese in high age. 1925 he died in Munich.
The villa of Grützner is today protected as a monument.
