This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Louis Eyth is known for his historical paintings of Texas and historical figures of Texas history, and his work can be found at the Texas State Capitol. In addition to painting and illustrating, he was a fine art teacher as well.

Eyth was born in Prussia and came to the Untied States in 1852, settling in Galveston, Texas. Following the Civil War, he was employed by the Blessing Brothers, Pioneer Texas photographers in Galveston, where he enhanced the photographs with oil, pastel or watercolor.

Eyth moved to Houston, Texas in 1870 and was commissioned by the State of Texas in 1873 to copy an early portrait of Stephen F. Austin. Eyth worked in San Antonio during which time he produced illustrations for James DeShields: "Surrender of Geronimo"," Battle of Plum Creek", "Death of Bowie: A Command from the Mexicans That He Be Killed", "The Speech of Travis to His Men at the Alamo", and "Death of Crockett".

In 1887, Eyth became a resident of Waco, Texas where he advertised as a portrait painter.
