    Good portraitist, whose paintings reflected by a strict posture, typical of people of Germanic origin.

    This is evident in the paintings “Dr Joseph Unzickel”, “Dr Joseph Unzickel’s Wife” and “Portrait Of A Woman.”

    Very nice seem to me the two “Child Portrait”, where children, although they are still young of age, show a posture of grown men swiftly.

      Yes, another example of early American painters not knowing how to realistically portray children. “Two Children” looks like they had their faces painted separately and glued on later. Maybe because they couldn’t sit still long enough?🙂
