    Friedrich Stahl, studied at the Munich Academy in 1878 as a pupil of Wilhelm Diez (1839-1907), Ludwig von Löfftz (1845-1910) and Gyula Benczúr (1844-1920). At the age of 21 he moved into his own studio in Berlin where he was active from 1886 until 1898. He co-founded the 'Vereinigung der XI' which had its first exhibition in 1892 at the Galerie Schulte in Berlin. He was later appointed as a member of the Society of German Watercolour Painters and for a period was active in the Munich Secession.

    Stahl travelled to England in 1899, when the present picture was painted, in order to further his interest and study of the Pre-Raphaelites.

    The artist subsequently moved to Florence in 1904, where he remained until 1913 studying the works of the early Italian Renaissance. In 1914 he briefly returned to Munich before settling in Rome.

    Works by the artist can be found in many major museums and galleries including Aachen, Suermondt-Ludwig-Museum; Darmstadt, Hessisches Landesmuseum; Kaiserslautern, Pfalzgalerie; Leipzig, Museum der bildenden Künste; Munich, Neue Pinakothek; Munich, Stadtmuseum.
