Biography from Charleston Renaissance Gallery:

A native of Lauterecken, Bavaria, Carl Christian Brenner was noted for his landscapes and genre paintings.   As a youth he demonstrated sufficient artistic talent to be offered admission to the Munich Art Academy.  However, instead of securing academic training he was trained by his father as a glazier.  In 1853, at the age of fifteen he immigrated to the United States, landing first at New Orleans.  He worked as a sign painter and glazier in that city for a few years but then moved to Louisville, Kentucky, where made his home for the remainder of his life.  In 1863 Brenner painted a panoramic view of Civil War scenes for the Masonic Hall of Louisville.

In the 1870s he began to devote more of his energies to landscape painting.  He exhibited landscapes in the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition of 1876 and the Louisville Industrial Exposition of 1879.  He became a member of the National Academy of Design in 1877 and participated in its activities until 1886.  In 1884 he ventured to the Rocky Mountains in search of outdoor vistas.  Brenner's most representative works were landscapes of scenes in Louisville and its vicinity.  His son, Carolus Brenner (1865-1929) was also a Louisville artist.

Biography from The Filson Historical Society, Inc.:
Carl C. Brenner, was born in Lauterecken, Germany, August 10, 1838. His father, Frederick Brenner, was a wine merchant and gave his son such education as the schools of his village afforded.  Brenner was taught drawing there, and showed such a decided talent for art that his instructor gave him extra lessons and helped him gain entrance to the Munich School of Art.  Unfortunately Brenner's father refused to let him attend.

Undaunted, Brenner came to Louisville, Kentucky in 1853 and began his career as a sign painter.  Many years would pass before Brenner turned once again to fine art. Brenner loved nature and was fond of rambling the fields and forests surrounding Louisville.

In 1871 he began his career as a landscape artist.   His first painting of distinction was a canvas depicting beech trees.  Brenner obtained great success in Louisville, and exhibited at local and national art galleries, such as the Corcoran in Washington.

Brenner explored the varying faces of all nature's seasons, and particularly enjoyed painting the beech woods of Kentucky.  He married Ann Glass in 1864 and had six children.  His son Carolus Brenner inherited his artistic talent.  Carl Brenner died in Louisville in 1888.
