Finding Stockfleth

Julius Stockfleth (American/German 1857-1935)


Simpson Galleries is currently compiling the catalogue raisonné for the marine/landscape artist Julius Stockfleth.


The project is in conjunction with the assistance of the Rosenberg Library in Galveston Texas, The Museum of Texan Cultures in San Antonio Texas, the Texas State Capital, the Carl Haberlin Freisen Museum in Wyk Auf Fohr, Germany and other related institutions and collectors.


This is an important endeavor for the preservation of a local artist who lived and worked in the Houston and Galveston areas from 1885 until 1907. So far, we have been able to discover more than 250 more works by this important artist that were not included in the last book on the artist written by James McGuire and published in 1976.

William "Ray" Simpson, Sr., owner of over twenty works by the artist and an expert on the subjects and style of Julius Stockfleth, is looking for any information or artwork that you may have to help in the compilation. The catalogue raisonné is expected to go to press by the fall of 2020.
