    PAUL RICHARD SCHUMANN (American, 1876-1946)
    Cross Mountain
    Oil on canvas
    16 x 22 inches (40.6 x 55.9 cm)
    Signed lower left: Paul R. Schumann

    Born in Germany, Schumann settled at Galveston about 1882. He studied under Galveston artist Julius Stockfleth and became a well-known painter of Gulf scenes, although he also painted in West Texas and New Mexico. Schumann was a member of the Southern States Art League, the Texas Fine Arts Association, and the Galveston Art League. This rare inland landscape by Schumann depicts Cross Mountain just north of Fredericksburg, a site also painted by Edward G. Eisenlohr. This view could very well be looking south with Fredericksburg visible in the background. Although Schumann was known especially for his palette-knife paintings, this work appears to be made up almost entirely of brushwork; a rarity in his oeuvre.
