    I am researching work by Wilhelm Funk. I am in possession of a large portrait he painted of my American grandmother Mrs.Willoughby Sharp in l906. The portait is l80cms x 160cms. I also have phoos of Funk working on the painting in his studio n New York. I would value help in sourcing any background information on the artist and images of other work by him. I understand he died quite young and left a relatively small bobdy of work.

      Sam, Wilhelm Funk and my wife’s great grand-father (John Foege, Sr.) were close friends and partners in the early twentieth century. My Mother-in Law has a painting by Wilhelm Funk. It is a portrait of John Foege, Sr. Later John Foege, Sr. left New York and moved to Richmond, VA where he opened a Cigar Factory in Richmond, VA. The business survived until the Depression. I am doing research on Wilhelm Funk because of his relationship to my wife’s great grand father. I hope we can contact each. I am sure that we both have information to share.
