Jacob Lehnen was one of the more important still life painters of his time, specializing in fruit, breakfast and hunting still life.  He was part of the Düsseldorf School of Painting, a German Romantic movement that had a significant influence on the Hudson River School in the United States.  Many prominent Americans trained at the Düsseldorf Academy and show the influence of the Düsseldorf School, including Eastman Johnson, Worthington Whittredge, William Stanley Haseltine, James McDougal Hart, Helen Searle, and William Morris Hunt, as well as Emanuel Leutze.

Lehnen’s works are located in the Kunstmuseum Düsseldorf and the Düsseldorf City Museum, the National Gallery Berlin, the City Museum of Königsberg and the Museum Liège in Belgium, and in the Volmer collection of the Von der Heydt Museum in Wuppertal, Germany.
