About the Artist:
Albert Flamm is a well known German landscape painter. He was born in Cologne and was a pupil of the well known Düsseldorf Artist Andreas Achenbach at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. His pictures, the subjects of which were chosen almost exclusively from Italian scenery, command attention by their truthfulness to nature, careful execution, and bright and varied effects of color.
