Gottwald, Frederick C.

Frederick C. Gottwald (b1858-d1941)

Gottwald's influence on the early art scene cannot be overestimated. He came From studies in Munich and regularly showing at the National Academy of Design to 41 years of nurturing, developing and teaching at the Cleveland School of Art. (1885-1926). His style was influenced by his traditional Germanic studies and by what he saw of the new Impressionism as he moved around in the art world and in the homes of collecting Clevelanders. Not always in sympathy with the new painting, he acknowledged its influence. He taught Keller, Wilcox, Travis and sometimes grumbled with the trends he saw.
