Schoyerer (1844-1923)

Josef Schoyerer (March 1844 - 1923) was a German landscape painter. He later turned to painting and became a student of Karl Millner. A main focus of his work was mountain painting, whereby he placed more emphasis on composition than detail. He undertook numerous study trips to Tyrol and Italy, where he painted, among other things, the ore processing of the mine on the Silberleithe near Biberwier.
