This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted May 2005, is from Ben Landis, who has researched the artist.

The artist signed his first name in several different ways: Herman, Hermann, Herrmann. On two of his drawings with which I am familiar he added after his name "pinxit". On one of these drawings below his name is the name "John Becker". On that same drawing there is a stamp that appears to be an escutcheon with 3 crosses in a triangular pattern split by a v-shaped chevron. This escutcheon is stamped two times side by side, once on the front of the drawing, once on the back. Of the drawings with which I am familiar that are dated, the dates are 1876; July 8, 1884; December 1884. All the drawings with which I am familiar are of residences or buildings in East Salem, Pennsylvania.

I have the following information in a letter from an owner of several Markert drawings: "Herman Markert, to the best of my knowledge, came to this country from Germany. At the time he was here his mother was living in Berlin. He may have come as a mercenary in the Civil War. There is no record of owning any property or paying any tax. No one seems to know how he came to be in this area (Juniata & Snyder Cos.) It is not known where he went from here or where he may be buried. There is nothing in print that I know of, only what was passed down from the ancestors. The story is that he would stay with a family and do a drawing for his keep."
