Biography from Dobiaschofsky Auktionen, Bern:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The landscape and genre painter Albert Kappis is regarded as the pioneer of Impressionism in Swabia.  Born the son of a pharmacist in the Black Forest, he graduated in 1850 with his uncle, a lithography gate not in Stuttgart, followed by a study under Heinrich von Rustige, Heinrich Funk and Bernhard von Neher at the academy.

In 1860 he joined the history painter Karl von Piloty at the Munich Academy, where he met a circle of other Swabian painters: Carl Ebert, Jacob Green Forest, Theodor Christoph Schüz, Mali and Christian Anton Braith.  Influenced by Carl Spitzweg, Carl Eduard Schleich and Ebert himself, Kappis turned in the episode the "paysages intimate" to - the representation of nature as a man-embossed, internalized space in which genre and landscape painting merge.

His other years the artist spent both in his native Swabia and on study tours in Austria, Italy, France and Holland as well as in Switzerland and the Baltic Sea.  Kappis landscape paintings were always rather mood for genre pictures in which manifested itself from the 1870s, the influence of French Impressionism: Loose brushwork, light pastel tones and light effects increasingly influenced his work.  In 1880 Albert Kappis was appointed professor of landscape painting at the Stuttgart Academy.
