This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known primarily for his paintings from which lithographs were made, especially one titled "Custer's Last Stand", 1895.  More than a million copies were made and distributed in ad advertising campaign by Anheuser-Busch Brewery.

Becker was born in Dresden, Germany and arrived in the United States in 1873.  He worked briefly in Boston and St. Louis before settling in Milwaukee, where his name was listed in the City Directory from 1881 to 1947.
