Fine Art/About Christian Schneider (b1793-1854)


I recently acquired a portrait painting signed by Christian Schneider and dated in 1828. All I can find is when he was born and when he died. There was no information that I can found about the artist, nor to mention the portrait sitter.

If you can provide any information, I will appreciate it.
The painting can be seen at:

The signature part on the painting is too dark to get a good picture.


Dear Lin, The only thing I could find on your artist: Christian Heinrich Schneider painter of portraits born in Hamburg 1793, died 1854. He is not listed in a six volume dictionary of German artists, nor in another single volume dictionary of German artists. We just have to accept the fact that he was not very prominent.
