BIOGRAPHY
“After studying at the Städelsches Kunstinstitut in Frankfurt, Adolf Schreyer attended the academy in Düsseldorf. He visited Stuttgart and Munich and went to Vienna in 1849. During the Crimean War he was a draughtsman. After travelling to France and North Africa to study, he settled in Paris in 1862 where he lived until 1870.

“In 1871 he returned to Frankfurt. He was a member of the academies of Amsterdam and Rotterdam and received medals in Paris in 1864, 1865 and 1867 and in Munich in 1876. His various travels provided him with material for his compositions. He was primarily a genre painter who studied peasant life in different countries, including the former Soviet Union and North Africa.

“He had a predilection for painting horses from all angles. In this respect his work is perhaps reminiscent of that of Eugène Fromentin (1820–1876) - brilliant in colour and bold in touch. His compositions are always very cleverly conceived and the phenomenal success he enjoyed in his lifetime has not completely waned” (Benezit, Dictionary of Artists, Gründ, 2006).
