Wilhelm Meyerheim was born in Danzig, Germany (now Gdansk, Poland); eventually settling in Berlin, working there until his death. His father, a talented portrait painter, provided him with his early training before he studied in Danzig, eventually continuing his education at the Academy in Berlin. His works suggest that he spent time sketching the peasantry in the countryside’s of Hesse and Tyrol. The artist soon became popular painter – creating scenes of everyday outdoor life, simple activities which often included his favorite subject’s, children and horses; winter scenes, often with the same old tree as depicted herein-silhouetted against the winter sky. The work has be lined and stretched on a modern strainer and is mounted within a period frame. Extremely minor fill mostly confined to outermost edges.
