Anton Doll, a Munich artist, was a painter of architectural views and a lithographer. Heinrich Bürkel (1802–1869), another Munich artist, influenced Doll’s style and choice of subjects, including the Alpine scenery of southern Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, which both artists found inspiring.

Doll found romantic views in the rugged terrain surrounding the Bodensee (Lake Constance) and the Brenner Pass, but is best known for his paintings of old Munich, many of which are winter scenes by moonlight. In addition to their artistic merit, these architectural paintings have historical value because many of the buildings depicted have since disappeared. Doll made lithographs from some of his paintings. In his time, his delicately rendered drawings were especially popular with collectors. The Altenburg Museum in Germany and the museum in Nantes, France, own his paintings.
