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

Franz Xavier Wolfe was born in the old city Kaufbeuren, Bavaria in 1887, and died in the small mountain city of Zankenhaus, Germany in 1972.  Wolfe is considered a miniature portrait artist from the German school.

In 1907, Wolfle traveled to Munich to study painting at the Academy of Fine Art, which was founded 1808 by Maximilian I of Bavaria in Munich as the "Royal Academy of Fine Arts", and is one of the oldest and most significant art academies in Germany.

Wolfle studies were interrupted with the outbreak of World War I.  Upon the war's conclusion, Franz began painting highly detail miniature portraits to support his family.  These wonderful miniature masterpieces (painted using a brush with a single hair) captured the individual character of local Bavaria merchants, farmers, politicians and their wives.

With their popularity with collectors and tourists from European continent and the United States, galleries began displaying pairs of the unique portraits under a magnifying glass to show the minute detail that Franz Xavier Wolfle included is each portrait.
