Artists Biography

Max Volkhart

German ~ 1848 - 1935
Max Volkhart was a genre painter born in Düsseldorf on 17 October 1848. He died in the same city on 11 February 1935. Max was the son of the historical painter Georg Wilhelm Volkhart. He was also a student at the Academy of Düsseldorf from 1865 to 1870 and of Edward von Gebhardt until 1874.

As a successful commercial artist, Volkhart achieved plaudits from his continued critics. His ability to capture ‘inner light’ within the composition of his paintings was, as in ‘A Surprise visit’, very successful. Painting out of period costume drama was his forte and his scenes of romantic courtship in the late 18th and early 19th century. He continued to benefit from delivering Classical periods as we see here.
