Comments: As a youth he carved meerschaum and was apprenticed to a gold engraver. He became a die sinker and in 1877 a lithographer. By 1880 he was teaching drawing. He made his first visit West in 1893, sketching the Utes in Colorado and cowboys in Arizona. First prize for one of these paintings in the NAD exhibition of 1900 won him success and he returned West again in 1900 to sketch troopers and Indians in the Dakotas for a series on the Western Army. His output was limited to relatively few major works per year but reproductions were widely published. Schreyvogel died of blood poisoning.
