Hermann Nestel (Stuttgart 1858 – 1905 Bordighera) began his artistic training in his hometown and then moved to Munich and Berlin. Like many artists of the time, he made his trip to Italy to complete his training. In 1882 he was commissioned by the German Wilhelm Spemann to illustrate the Ligurian and French coasts, from Nice to La Spezia. The drawings of Nestel were used to illustrate the book "Die Riviera", written by Woldemar Kaden.In 1887 he decided to settle in Bordighera. There, he met the botanist and landscape architect Ludwig Winter. One of Nestel's daughters married Antonio Winter. Nestel then began a collaboration with Winter in the creation of gardens, without however interrupting his work as a painter. He had the opportunity to exhibit his works not only in Bordighera, memorable was the one at the "Victoria Hall" in Via Vittorio Veneto, but also in Turin and Germany. He died at the age of 47 in 1905. His grave is in the cemetery of Bordighera.
