Charles Volkmar became an American landscape painter of international repute during the latter half of the nineteenth century. He was born in Maryland and inherited his family’s artistic genes; his grandfather was an engraver and his father a Dresden trained portraitist, etcher, and restorer. It was in Paris that Volkmar studied under the master sculptor Antoine-Louis Bayre, and subsequently under leading Barbizon painter Joseph Henri Harpignies. Evidently, Bayre enhanced his ability to model two-dimensional form in paint and Harpignies imbued his brush with a lush softness in its approach to landscape.
Volkmar exhibited widely at the Paris Salon, National
