Artist. A native of Germany, he came to the United States in 1849. Encouraged by the discovery of gold, he moved to California in 1851 but soon gave up on mining and eventually settled in San Francisco in 1852 to focus on painting. Considered one of California's pioneer artists, he is best known for works such as "Miners in the Sierras" (1851-1852), "Sunday Morning in the Mines" (1872), and "The Fandango" (1873). Originally buried in San Francisco's Laurel Hill Cemetery, his body was moved to Cypress Lawn Memorial Park after the eviction of cemeteries from San Francisco city limits. He was re-buried in an unmarked grave in the Laurel Hill mound.
