This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Louis Fleischmann (19th/20th centuries)

A painter and illustrator of German origin, he settled in the Washington DC area and was active there in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  He painted primarily agricultural subjects, and many of his paintings are in the collection of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

His work is also on view at the National Arboretum, the Fruit Laboratory and the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville Maryland.

Donn Piatt (1819-1891), a lawyer, newspaperman and diplomat and his wife, Louise Kirby Piatt, who wrote for popular Ladies' magazines in the 1850's under the pen name Belle Smith,  lived in Cincinnati, Ohio and in Washington, DC for most of their lives.

In July, 1853, they left for Paris, where  Mr Piatt had been appointed to the American legation.  In late 1854, Piatt, C. L. Fleischmann , together with a Mr Chase, began a newspaper called American for the American colony living in Paris.  It was the first newspaper of its kind.  It is believed that Fleischmann was studying painting there at the time, but in his association with the newspaper American, he was an illustrator.

The Piatts returned to Washington in 1855, where Donn worked for several newspapers, writing editorials and by 1871, had his own newspaper called The Capitol.   Fleischmann did a watercolor for a promotion, showing newspaper boys scurrying out of the Capitol newspaper office.  This original watercolor was sold at Sotheby's in 1946, but photographic copies of this also exist.

A painting by Fleischmann of Petersburg, Va. , showing a bridge and the small town, was sold at Sotheby's in 1945.

A large (56"x 64") oil signed C.L. Fleischmann, depicts a banquet table with spilled fruit.  Also in the painting, a small dog sitting on the table, has chased a brown monkey, clinging to an orange and hanging on the gasolier overhead.  The painting was a housewarming gift from Donn Piatt to his brother, Abram Saunders Piatt, who had just completed a large stone house he called the Chateau Mac-A-Cheek.  The painting may have been a special commission, and is still in the chateau, owned by Piatt descendants, in West Liberty, Ohio.

Several paintings by Fleischmann are in the collection of the Agricultural Commission in Washington.  They are all agricultural in subject.
