Description Paul Ritter was born in Nuremberg March, 1829 and died November 27, 1907. He received his formal training at the Dusseldorf School in Munich. In 1860, he traveled to the United States and established a studio in Vermont where he painted the Green mountain range. He later traveled to North Conway, New Hampshire to continue his studies and paint with the other artists he had met in Munich. He traveled throughout the eastern United States.

Influenced by Frederick Church's Andes paintings, Ritter joined a group of American artists on a trip to explore and paint in the Andes Mountains. Upon his return, Ritter found that the U.S. market for his tonal landscapes had diminished and he made the decision to return to Nuremberg.

1880 Gold medal at the Berlin Expo.
