Friedrich Wilhelm Kuhnert

1865 - 1926
Painter
Origin: Germany
Born: September 28, 1865, Oppeln, Germany
Died: February 11, 1926, Flims, Switzerland

German born artist Kuhnert was one of the first European artists to travel to East Africa to sketch the wildlife and terrain of the region. At the end of the nineteenth-century, Kuhnert trained at the Berlin Academy of Arts. At that time, Berlin was a hotbed of sporting art. Most of Kuhnert's teachers and fellow students studied animals in captivity. However, Kuhnert worked with the prominent animal painter Richard Friese who emphasized studying animals in their native habitats.
