Original antique print


Adolph Birkenruth was born in Grahamstown, South Africa. His father Nathan was a Prussian born diamond broker and his mother Rosa came from Frankfurt. At some point in the 1860's the family returned to Frankfurt where Adolph received his formal education. By 1881 Adolph is recorded as living in Notting Hill and working as a diamond polisher, but it would seem that shortly afer this he decided to pursue a career as an artist and went to Paris to study. He exhibited at The Royal Academy from 1885 and latterly enjoyed some success working for The Illustrated London News. From 'The Illustrated London News'. Unrelated text on the reverse.
