Biography from Field Museum Of Natural History:
The painter Julius Moessel completed the eighteen murals in The Field Museum's Plants of the World exhibit comparatively late in his career. Moessel was one of the Chicago art scene's most notable figures from the late 1920s through the 1950s--but the Chicago years were actually a second career for the German artist.

Born in 1871 in Fürth, Moessel studied at the Munich Academy under Rudolph von Seitz, and while still in his twenties established a successful career as a muralist and painter of architectural decoration.  Murals in the Jury Room at Nuremberg (site of the famed war trials), the Court Theater at Stuttgart, and the City Hall at Leipzig are but three of the prolific painter's more notable German projects.
