Schlesinger was a pupil of the Dusseldorf Academy and also of Jordan. He lived for several years in Paris before finally settling in Munich. During this period he painted some of his finest work, encouraged by the successful demand for this rustic, narrative genre so prevalent at the Munich School. Schlesinger’s work was highly acclaimed with one piece being purchased for the nation by the Municipal Gallery, Hamburg.
His works included “Peasants in Holstein Preparing to go to Church” 1854, “Saved from Shipwreck”, “Post Office” and “Children at the Well” 1864, “Young Couple’s Visit to Parents” 1866, “At The Jewellers”, “In Danger, Out of Danger” 1883.
His works can be found in the Hamburg Gallery.
