. Friedrich Kallmorgen received his first drawing lessons by his uncle Theodor Küchel.
In 1875, he visited the preparatory class at the Düsseldorf Academy of Arts under Andreas Müller and Ernst Deger. Subsequently he moved to the academy of Art in Karlsruhe, where he studied under the landscape painter Hans Fredrik Gude and stylistically followed the Barbizon school, in combination with Dutch influences.
Kallmorgen made many extended national and international journeys. In 1902 he finally received a professorship in the landscape class at the Berlin Academy of Fine Arts which he pursued with passion until its end. Since 1910, he was a director of the Große Berliner Kunstausstellung.
Friedrich Kallmorgen studied at the Düsseldorf Academy before moving to Karlsruhe in 1877. There he associated with the circle of Gustav Schönleber, which inspired him to turn to Impressionism. This style was to have a lasting influence on his career. In 1902, he succeeded Eugen Bracht as head of the landscape class at the Berlin Academy. He was to find his defining motif late in his œuvre, becoming the iconic painter of Hamburg Harbor.
