Hermann Lungkwitz

Hermann Lungkwitz (1813–1891) was a 19th Century German-born Texas romantic landscape artist and photographer whose work became the first pictorial record of the Texas Hill Country. Also trained in Germany, Lungkwitz emigrated to the United States, landing first in New York City. They migrated to Wheeling, West Virginia, but decided on the destination of Texas in 1851.  His Texas subjects were the German settlements of New Braunfels and Sisterdale, the Hamilton Pool and West Cave at Round Mountain, Marble Falls, and areas around Austin and San Antonio. From 1866-1870, Lundkwitz ran a San Antonio photography studio with Carl G. von Iwonski.
