FEDOR ALEXIS FLINZER, 1832 – 1911, got his art-education at the kunstakademie in DRESDEN, germany. one of his teachers was the woodcut illustration master LUDWIG RICHTER. FLINZER became a drawing-teacher and wrote a book about art education, what made him quite well known in europe and even in the U.S. he was a typical artist of the BIEDERMEIER and the ROMANTICISM, with traces of JUGENDSTIL in his later work. his favorite illustration subjects were animals, especially cats, what gave him the the nickname – ‘katzen-flinzer’ ( cat-flinzer ). similar to WILHELM VON KAULBACH and GRANDVILLE he specialized in the satirical world of humanized animals. following are some illustrations from the book KOENIG NOBEL, published 1886.

Thanks for posting these Hans. It’s the first I’ve seen of his work. It reminds me of Ernest Griset who is an old favourite of mine.
