Franz Holzlhuber's Watercolors
Franz Holzlhuber (1826-1898) was an Austrian visitor to the U.S. from 1856 to 1860, who stayed for a while in Milwaukee before venturing out to see the countryside. While travelling he sketched his observations and recorded descriptions on notepaper. Later some of his sketches were published in such periodicals as Harper's Monthly. After his return to Austria, he used his sketches in lectures and as sources for larger drawings.
