This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biography of Eugene Sintzenich was provided to by Paula Sintzenich, a descendant of the artist.

Born in Germany, his father was Court Painter to the Kaiser. Sintzenich spent the major part of his career as a painter, first coming to America in 1831 to paint views of Niagara Falls, Upper Canada, and New York State. In 1838, Abelard Reynolds, owner of the Reynolds Arcade, engaged him to paint large murals of Niagara Falls on the interior walls of the Arcade entrance.

Sintzenich lived in Rochester on and off until his death here during the
cholera epidemic of 1852. He painted and exhibited several grand Panorama paintings, worked as a teacher of Art in the Rochester Athenaeum, and had a diverse business involving sign painting, making drawings for patents and as a lithographer.

In January of 1842, Sintzenich opened the first daguerreotype studio in
Rochester in the Reynolds Arcade. He sold the business less than one year later to Thomas Mercer.

There are no known images from Sintzenich's short career as a daguerreotypist. There is a painting by him, "Auburn Station", in the collection of the Rochester Historical Society.

Sintzenich had a son, also named Eugene, who worked in Rochester as a lithographer. It seems likely that the daguerreotype of the young man (now unlocated), identified as Eugene Sintzenich, which is published in the Rochester Historical Society Publication Fund Series, is an image of the son and not "Professor Sintzenich", the father.
