Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Henri Schäfer (French, 1833-1916)  

A Victorian-era artist who studied at l'Ecole National de Beaux-Arts, Paris, he painted town and city scenes and cathedral interiors in Belgium, Germany, and France.  The townscape paintings of Henri Schäfer are often misattributed to the British artist Henry Thomas Schafer, and their biographical details are occasionally merged, most notably in Emmanuel Benezit, Dictionnaire Critique et Documentaire des Peintres...   The catalogs of auction houses regularly confuse the two artists.
