Agricolagasse , 1936 named after the painter and engraver Karl Agricola (1779–1852). After initial studies at the Academy in Karlsruhe, he moved from Karlsruhe to Vienna as a 14-year-old in 1793 and had been a student at the Vienna Academy since then, and from 1836 he was a member of the Academy. He lived in Vienna until his death in 1852 and was highly valued in Viennese society for his miniatures. His artistic focus was on portrait miniatures in watercolor and oil and graphics (works in the Historical Museum of the City of Vienna, in the Austria Gallery and in the Albertina), as well as various Viennese views (including the Danube with an old Tabor Bridge, solar eclipse from Franziskanerplatz in 1842, view of Vienna von Grinzing, Fries family, copper engravings of the tomb of Archduchess Marie Christine in the Augustinian Church). He was not one of the leading masters of his time, but was very popular and busy with the imperial, nobility and bourgeoisie.

He was buried at the Sankt Marxer Friedhof.
