The Art of Robert Koehler

Robert Koehler was born on November 28, 1850, in Hamburg, Germany. In 1884 his family moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. 

He attended the German English Academy as a child. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and became a lithography apprentice.

In 1871 Robert traveled to have eye surgery and stayed on as a lithographer.

He was well-known in his time as a portrait artist, although he did landscapes and paintings on current social situations.

Robert Koehler died on April 23, 1917 at the age of 66 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

I claim nothing here as my own. All information and photographs are rom Robert Koehler sites.
