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

Born in Hamburg Altona, the painter Christian Sell studied at the Dusseldorf Academy under Hildebrandt and W. Von Schadow from 1851 to 1856.  He undertook numerous study trips through Germany and Belgium.  In his early works, he created historical war scenes from the 17th century.  However, due to his participation in the wars of 1864, 1866 and 1870, he went over to the description of contemporary events, many subjects were of military genre of the time.

He generally painted in oil on wood panel.  Though he completed larger works, most were miniatures, less than 9" X 12".  Works by Christian Sell are displayed in important collections, for example at the Military History Museum in Vienna, and the Berlin National Gallery.
