Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen, German 1813-1886

Called Meyer von Bremen after his place of birth, this artist was also nicknamed “Kinder-Meyer” due to his preference for children as subjects.  A genre painter with an enormous following, especially in the United States, Meyer gave evidence in his early years of his artistic ability.  In 1833 he entered the Academy at Dusseldorf where he studied under Professors Karl Sohn and Wilhelm Schadow.  Schadow, a “Nazarene” artist is now remembered for his teaching rather than for his own painting. 

Initially, Meyer painted religious and historical subjects but in 1840, after travel in Bavaria and Switzerland, he began to develop the pleasant, humorous scenes of childhood for which he became known.  His pictures appealed to the common sentiments of the people and, as he painted for this emotional response, he was knot unknown to direct the gaze of his most touching subject at the viewer.

Most of his working life Meyer spent in Berlin, becoming a Professor at the Academy in 1863.  He was also a member of the Amsterdam Academy and the Order of Leopold, and received medals at exhibitions in Berlin and Philadelphia.

Biography excerpted from the unpublished catalog by Edward P. Bentley for the Haussner Restaurant in Baltimore, Maryland, titled: Haussner’s, The Children.
