In 1852 the history, religious, and genre painter Carl Bertling produced his first major work, a religious painting entitled Hagar and Ishmael (present location unknown), at the Düsseldorf Academy under the tutelage of Wilhelm Schadow (1788–1862). He spent the next several years executing decorative projects in Düsseldorf, including Cain and Abel for the Palace of Justice and a series of frescoes for the Royal Secondary School. He also painted murals for numerous churches, including the Church of Saint Joseph in Dresden, where he settled in 1879.
