Fine Art/Paintings by Madroza and Maddaus


Hello Mr. Hynes,
Could you possibly tell me any information about either Johann Karl Ludwig Maddaus (my great-great-grandfather) or Henry Madroza?  I have two oil paintings given to me by my grandparents one of which is signed by a Henry Madroza.  I believe the other is a painting by my Johann, though I cannot see any signature.  Any information you might be able to provide, I would appreciate.  I can send a picture of each as well.
Thank you,

Dear John, I found a small listing for Johann Karl Ludwig Maddaus painter of portraits and lithographer. He was born in Hamburg in 1820 and died in Riga in 1878. I find no listing for Henry Madroza. It is often difficult to find Spanish names as sometimes they are listed under their mother's name and sometimes under their father's name.
