Christoph Heinrich Kniep was a German artist noted for accompanying the famous German writer Goethe on his journey to Naples, Paestum and Sicily. Initially, Kniep worked as a portrait artist, then in 1781 he travelled to Italy, where he painted predominately vistas and landscapes. There he met Goethe in Naples, being introduced to him by a mutual friend, artist Johann Heinrich Wilhelm Tischbein. After separating from Goethe on his return from Sicily, Kniep remained in Naples, where he died in 1825. Ref: Wiki.
