Johann Leonhard Raab (29 March 1825, Unterschwaningen - 2 April 1899, Munich) was a German etcher, engraver and painter. After receiving his basic education in the Nuremberg public schools, he attended the Academy of Fine Arts there. Although he began as a painter, he was soon attracted to engraving and began formal studies with Samuel Amsler. At first, he concentrated on small plates for book publishers but, even then, his mature pictorial style became apparent. Eventually, in 1866, on recommendation by Julius Thaeter (1804-1870), he was appointed to succeed the latter as Professor of Engraving at the Academy of Fine Arts, Munich. His daughter Doris Raab was born in Nuremberg in 1851 and she became his pupil exhibiting in France and Germany and at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. He retired in 1895 and, with three of his friends, opened a painting studio.
