Joseph Molitor von Muhlfeld, German 1856 - 1890

Little is known about this artist who flourished for only a few short years before his death at the very early age of 34.  Born in a castle at Westheim near Augsburg, Germany, Muhlfeld may possibly have received initial art instruction in Augsburg before leaving for Munich.  There, in 1875, he began his studies under Professor Wilhelm von Lindenschmit.   This instructor took many of his subjects from history or literature and was a strict academic artist and had trained at the state sponsored institutions in Munich, Antwerp and Paris.

Muhlfeld, though highly competent in the rendering of character, initially found his compositions lacking vitality.  He eventually overcame this deficiency in the course of his travels as he fell under the spell of the Impressionists.  An artist who made excellent use of his powers of observation and expression, Muhlfeld clearly found the child's world appealing as much of his work demonstrates.   He was able to sense and display a wonderful sensitivity to the innocence and play of childhood.

The artist was also known to have participated in the yearly exhibitions in Vienna and Dresden prior to his early death in Munich.

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner's, The Children.
