Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen was a German painter born in Bremen. He studied at the Düsseldorf Academy under K.F. Sohn and F.W. Schadow. After an early career specializing in religious subjects, he traveled in rural Bavaria and Switzerland gathering material for his genre paintings, later becoming what might be called a painter of charming young girls.
Either painted as narrative scenes or as ideal types, his work found a ready market in Europe and the United States. His children are invariably idealized and usually in a domestic setting, often engaged in typical pursuits such as knitting, reading, etc. His work is far superior to the usual run of sentimental Victorian child art, investing a note of realism into both the figures and their settings.
