Biografie von Edward BEYER (1820-1865)

Birth place: German Rhineland

Death place: Munich

Profession: Landscape and panorama painter

Comments: Came to America about 1848 and remained until about 1857. In 1850 he was living in Philadelphia and in December 1853 he was in Cincinnati, but much of his time was apparently spent in Virginia, as a number of his views of that state were lithographed in Germany after his return there and published as an Album of Virginia (Richmond, 1858). While in America he also exhibited a panorama of the 1848 Revolution and one of Italy.
