German painter Franz Paul Guillery (1862-1933) was born near Cologne, the son of a mining engineer with upper class pretensions. His family money allowed to study art full time and he spent seven years of his 20s in Rome soaking up the Italian ambiance and honing his style. Yes, that's Venice above, but I haven't been able to find a painting of Rome. Perhaps his Roman works are not very good, or perhaps he really spent that time in wineshops and whorehouses.
Guillery left a huge body of work of many different sorts: portraits, still-lifes, landscapes, street scenes, unbelievably sappy Christian works, scenes from German mythology and more.
