This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from Peggy Purdue:

Hi, I would like to submit this information on my Great Uncle, Hermann
Richter. At you have one painting by a Hermann Richter but I am
not sure that this is my uncle as I cannot make out the signature. My uncle
always signed his paintings with H. Richter.

He was born in Hamburg Germany, on July 29, 1875, came to the U.S. in 1927, and lived in California for 14 years. He died in San Diego, California on May 03, 1941. His death certificate lists his Occupation as Artist and Business as Portrait.

He painted murals also for the 1939 Worlds Fair in San Francisco. He also did mural work at Schroeder's Cafe, 240 Front Street in San Francisco. This was a time before World War I when Germany was widely idealized as a romantic, bucolic, beer- and brass-band country. And in 1932, a nostalgic Herman Richter started painting it that way. His mural-size canvasses have enlivened Schroeder's downtown San Francisco restaurant ever since, in both its past and present locations.
