John Lewis Krimmel was a genre and portrait painter. Born in Ebingen (Wurttemberg), Krimmel emigrated to the United States in 1810, settling in Philadelphia, Pa. There he painted portraits, miniatures, and satiric street scenes. He returned to Germany in 1817 but was back in Philadelphia by 1819. Early in 1821, Krimmel was elected President of the Association of American Artists, but on July 15 of the same year he accidentally drowned near Germantown, cutting his career short.
