Biography from Anne Frances Moore Fine Art:
Fridolin Schlegel was trained in Germany before immigrating to the United States in the wake of the revolution of 1848.  He settled in Newark, New Jersey and became active in the art community there.

In the early 1850’s, Schlegel was one of the artists who participated in the Newark Art Union, which exhibited work in Newark’s Library Hall.  Their art was available for purchase by subscription and they were successful enough to construct a separate Gallery next to the Library by the end of the year.  Their mistake was to hold a public lottery of 40 paintings and sculpture.  Although the subject matter of many of the works revolved around religious themes, the lottery was criticized for going against New Jersey’s lottery laws and lack of support for the Art Union forced them to close in 1853.

We know that Schlegel was one of the most prominent painters to be involved in the Union, showing such works as Madonna and Child and Luther and his Coadjutators in 1850 and St. Paul in 1851. (See William H. Gerdts, Art Across America, Vol. I: The East and the Mid-Atlantic. New York: Abbeville Press, 1990, pg. 236.)
