Name: Louis Charles Moeller
Dates: (1855 - 1930)
Nationality: American
Biography:

A native of New York, Louis Moeller became one of America's foremost anecdotal genre painters in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His favorite subject was distinguished elderly men going about everyday activities in gentile interior settings that reflected Victorian tastes.

He was the son of a decorative painter and was initially taught by his father and then attended classes at the National Academy of Design and with E. M. Ward and Will Low. For six years, he studied in Munich with Frank Duveneck, Ludwig Lofftz, and Feodor Dietz and during this period was part of a group of American artists emulating 17th century Dutch masters.

Returning to New York, Moeller opened a studio and did decorative painting while developing the genre style for which he is known.
