Rate this:
The German immigrant contribution to American art begins in the colonial period with such artists as Augustin Herrmann and Jeremiah Theus. Later, in the nineteenth century, America experienced a remarkable influx of skilled professional artists, many of whom had been trained at the academies in Dusseldorf, Munich, Berlin, and Weimar. German Immigrant Artists in America examines who these immigrant artists were, where they came from, and the skills they brought which have in turn influenced other American artists. Merrill presents information on artists who worked in a variety of media, including painters, graphic artists, engravers, lithographers, sculptors, and some stained glass designers. Recommended for art history libraries and art historians interested in German influences on American art.
