Hermann Fuechsel(1833 - 1915)
Hermann Füchsel was born in Brunswick, Germany, which is just southeast of Hannover. He studied landscape painting in Düsseldorf under the tutelage of Brandes and K. F. Lessing. In 1858, at the age of 25, Füchsel immigrated to New York City where he opened a studio in the Appleton's Building on Broadway. Although a lesser known Hudson River School painter, his paintings are as finely executed as a Bierstadt, Gifford or Kensett. The majority of Füchsel's paintings are from the Hudson River valley and mountain ranges in New York, and New Hampshire such as the White Mountains and Catskills. He also may have traveled to the Rocky Mountains in the 1890's. Füchsel exhibited his works regularly from the 1860's until the late 1880's at the National Academy of Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.
