This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Also known as Gunther Hartwick (dates unknown), the artist was active between 1847 and 1869. Hartwick carried on the landscape traditions of the seventeenth-century Dutch, George Henry Durrie and Thomas Birch.  He was in New Haven, Connecticut in the 1840s.  Outstanding compositions, contrasting textures and considerable animation distinguish his works.  He achieved a great, powdery softness when brushing in areas of fallen snow on trees.  One particular motif that Hartwick used was a hole cut through a frozen river surrounded by small blocks of ice.  He exhibited two landscapes in the American Art-Union in 1849. 

Hartwick’s canvases may be found in the following institutions: the Chicago Historical Society, the Western Reserve Historical Society, and the Malden (MA) Public Library, but most are in private collections.
