Christian Eduard Boettcher, German 1818-1889

Born in Imgenbroich near Montjoie, Christian Eduard Boettcher was the son of a factory director.  In 1834, after the early death of his parents, the boy went to live with his aunt.  He began working as a lithography assistant for the Eberoche Publishing Company in Stuttgart, and later worked for the Von Aruz Lithography Company.  A man of various talents, Boettcher also began painting portraits.

His artistic education began in earnest in 1844 upon his enrollment at the Dusseldorf Academy where he studied until 1849.  His instructors included Theodor Hildebrand, an artist known for his color and originality, and Wilhelm von Schadow, who was considered an excellent teacher.

After his marriage in 1847, his art began to gain the romantic-sentimentalized moods that found obvious favor with the public.  Evidently married life suited him well, although he and his wife did not have any children.  Growing in success and stature, the artist was appointed a Professor at the Dusseldorf Academy in 1872.

Boettcher, generally known as a genre artist, chose much of his subject matter from the area of the Rhine River.  Featured in numerous works by the artist is the little town of Oberwesel, on the Rhine, midway between Mainz and Kaablonz.  An excellent portraitist, the artist included many of his friends and members of his family as models in many of his paintings. 

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.

Biography from Hubbell Trading Post National Historic Site:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

A painting by this artist is in the Hubbell Trading Post Collection at Ganado, Arizona, which suggests that he may have been in the American West during his lifetime.  However there is no information to document this possibility.  In the Melton Art Reference Library publication, he is shown to have at least one painting in the Wallrof Richartz Museum in Koln, Germany.
