"Born in Dusseldorf, 1829. Brought to America at an early age. In 1853 he studied in Rome, Switzerland, and Germany. Elected a member of the National Academy in 1860, and later appointed Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, France. In 1867 he was sent to Europe upon a government commission, to make studies for a painting of the 'discovery of the north river by Hendrik Hudson.' Several of his paintings are owned by the U.S. govern- ment. He has received for his pictures higher prices than have been paid for any other American artist." [P. XXXIII.]
