570. A noted church painter who worked throughout the Midwest during the last half of the 19th Century. Johann Schmitt was born on November 17, 1825 in Heinstadt, Baden. As a young man, Schmitt received training in the fine arts in Munich. His talent was quickly recognized by the leading religious painters of that city. The United States offered more opportunities for religious painters than Schmitt's native Germany. He initially settled in New York City but later moved to Cincinnati. While there, Schmitt provided training for one of America's most celebrated artists, Frank Duveneck. In 1864, he completed the imaged painting for St. Francis de Sales Church in Georgetown, Kentucky. Johann Schmitt died at the age of 72 on June 10, 1898.
