L. Ritter Art

L. Ritter (1854 – 1892) was a landscape painter who was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. His landscape paintings of the New England coast and of scenes in Europe show clearly how the new trends in European art were influencing American painting in the 1870s through to 1880s. Ritter studied at McMicken School of Design in Cincinnati from 1873 to 74. Four years later, he went to Munich in Germany to enroll in the prestigious Royal Academy of Munich. By then Munich was most important center of training for American painters. While there, he won a silver medal in drawing. Ritter and Theodore Wendel studied with Frank Duveneck, who was an influential American teacher and painter. Ritter and his team, the “Duveneck Boys,” visited Florence, Italy as part of their training. On returning to Cincinnati, Ritter organized an exhibition of work he and fellow students had done in Italy. Discouraged by the poor reception of the show by local critics, Ritter moved to Boston in 1883, where he shared a studio with Wendel. Ritter exhibited in Philadelphia, New York, Boston and his native Cincinnati. He worked in pastel and in watercolor as well as oils, and made portraits and still-lives as well as landscapes. He began teaching at nearby Wellesley College, in Boston, and painted the scenery along the coast north of the city. Ritter produced so many paintings. Because of the high demand for her creative pieces, several galleries stock ready to mount framed L. Ritter art while others avail them in a variety of other finishing options.
