Carl Ferdinand Sohn was an important painter of portraits and historical subjects who began his studies at the Berlin Academy of Art.  In 1826 he followed his teacher Wilhelm Schadow to Düsseldorf and there he was elected a master of that city’s Academy in 1832 and a professor in 1838. Sohn travelled to Holland and, in 1830, made a formative trip to Italy. The artist’s son, Carl Rudolph Sohn (1845–1908) was also a successful painter.
