"(Germ.) Duesseldorf. Pupil of the art school of Carlsruhe and the Academy of Duesseldorf. Medals at Berlin, Duesseldorf and Vienna. Genre painter. His 'christening scene' is in the Berlin National Gallery. The unwelcome visit. 32 x 46. A tete-a-tete seems to have been interrupted here. The visitor's anxious, appealing face shows that she brings no cheerful news. Even her pug has a doleful look. The expression of irritation and perplexity in the gentleman's face is finely worked out. Viewed simply as an interior, this is a very strong picture."
