Franz Pforr (5 April 1788 – 16 June 1812) was a painter of the German Nazarene Movement. Portrait by Johann Friedrich Overbeck, 1810. The Nazarene Brotherhood was committed to regenerating German religious art in imitation of the works of Durer, Perugino and Raphael. Overbeck and Pforr went to Rome in 1810 and were soon joined by other artists. One of the group's aims was the revival of fresco. The Nazarenes were particularly admired by the Pre-Raphaelites.
