Edward Volkert (American, 1871- 1935) was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1871.  He was a landscape and mural painter who specialized in  dappled pasture scenes with dairy cattle and oxen.  During the 1890s he studied at the Art Academy of Cincinnati under Frank Duveneck, Vincent Nowottny and Thomas Noble, then at the Art Student's League, New York.  Unlike many painters of his generation, he did not go to Europe to study, but kept a studio in New York until 1924, and afterwards in Lyme, Connecticut, spending part of each year in Cincinnati with his sisters.  He exhibited annually at the National Academy of Design from 1906 to 1933 and was a member of numerous art associations both in Ohio and elsewhere.  He died in 1935, in Cincinnati.
