A 19th-century American genre* painter in New York City, Alfred Kappes was renowned during his career for his sensitive portrayal of the lives of the African-American community, and was recognized as such in art reviews of the day. Unlike other artists who sentimentalized African-American subjects, Kappes painted these people with frankness and sensitivity. 

In 1870, he joined the staff of The New York Daily Graphic and also continued to do other illustration work inc (showing 500 of 2210 characters).
