Karl Schultze (1856-1935)

Summer Landscape with Figures by a Farmhouse

Karl Schultze was born in Dusseldorf in 1856. He received his training at the Dusseldorf Academy under the direction of the Head Professor of Fine Arts, George Oeder. It was Oeder who not only taught him the fundamentals of painting but also instilled within the young artist a love of painting pure landscapes. Graduating around 1880, he commenced his career as a professional artist and established a studio in Dusseldorf. Although he was based in his hometown, many of his paintings depict scenes in other areas of Germany, particularly the Alps, for which he seems to have held a special fascination.
