On a Rocky Texas Hillside is a wonderful example of the romantic landscape scenes done by the Texas artist Hermann Lungkwitz. The artist studied in Dresden, Germany, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. He immigrated to America in the 1850s and settled with his family in Fredericksburg, Texas. For over 40 years the artist wandered the Texas Hill Country, capturing the unspoiled wilderness and the spirituality of nature in luminous detail.
