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

A German painter and educator, Karl Seeger was known for landscape subjects. His collection of artwork and archival items is located in the State and University Library in Darmstadt.

Seeger was a pupil of Louis Catoir (1792-1841) in Mainz, and from 1826 of Carl Rottmann in Munich .

In 1837 he became an inspector at the Darmstadt Museum, and chief of the museum's art school. He is also the author of the first museum catalog, dated 1843.

Seeger is considered the discoverer of the 'Dachau Moss' as an artistic motif of many painters of the Munich School*. The moss was located north of Dachau and it noted for its landscape with meadows, pine forests, and swamp forests.

As an artist with acute powers of observation, he was appreciated for skillful reproduction of atmospherics* and was therefore also called Sky Seeger.

He was the first art teacher of the painter Rudolf Epp .

Works by Seeger are in museums in Darmstadt, Mainz, Würzburg and numerous private collections.
