Cedarburg's Bernhard Schneider:
From Len's to Brush
September 3 - November 16, 2014
German emigré Bernhard Schneider came to Milwaukee in 1885 for its panorama painting industry, but when it faded in the late 1880s, Schneider settled in Cedarburg where he could find lovely, rural landscapes to paint.
A recent discovery of Schneider photographic negatives brings new perspective to Schneider’s paintings and life in the 1890s and early 1900s. Explore a favorite spot of Schneider’s with his photos and paintings of the woodsy Hilgen Springs Resort, now lost to a residential subdivision.
