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.
