Hermann Sondermann’s Paintings of Peasantry

Hermann Sondermann (1832-1901) was born in Berlin, training there before studying in Antwerp. He then made the move to Düsseldorf, finalizing his artistic training under the tutelage of Friedrich Wilhelm von Schadow and Rudolf Jordan. Sondermann was one of the main artists of the Düsseldorf School and became famous for his paintings depicting the lives of peasants.

As is the case with many of these mostly forgotten European artists, it was difficult to find much information about Hermann and acquire quality images of his beautiful paintings.
