    We have a Carl Hirschberg “Scarying Grandpa” Print. Can you tell me anything about this Artist and this print?

      Carl Hirschberg was born in Berlin, Germany. At the age of six he came to the United States where he started school in New York. Then he went to Paris, at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, to study under Alexandre Cabanel. While in Paris he met a young artist from London, Alice Kerr-Nelson, and soon they were married. They returned to the United States, they settled in Connecticut and had three sons. The youngest of three, George Laurence Nelson, was also a painter.

    I own a quite nice watercolor painting by Alice Hirschberg from 1900 of Niagara Falls. Can you tell me anything about Carl’s wife?

      Alice Kerr-Nelson Hirschberg was born in England, February 12, 1856 and died in 1913. She was the daughter of George William Kerr-Nelson the Lord of Chaddleworth Manor in Middlesex, England. She was also descended from Elizabeth Kerr, a noted English floral painter. While studying art in Paris she met her future husband Carl Hirschberg. In 1884 they came to America and settled in Connecticut. Alice was known for watercolors, illustrations, portraits, landscapes and elaborate interiors. She was widely exhibited in the United States. Notes regarding Alice appear in the Smithsonian Archives of Artists along with her husband and son George Laurence Nelson.
