KRIMMEL, John Lewis, artist, born in Ebingen, Wurtemberg, Germany, in 1787; died near German-town, Pennsylvania, 15 July, 1821. He came to Philadelphia in 1810 to engage in business with his brother, but soon abandoned this occupation for art. He began by painting portraits, but, a copy of Wilkie's "Blind Fiddler" falling in his way, his attention was turned to humorous subjects. He also painted historical pictures, and at the time of his death--by drowning--he had received a commission to paint a large canvas on the landing of William Penn. Mr. Krimmel was president of the Society of American artists. Among his works are "'The Pepper-Pot Woman," " The Cut Finger," "Blind-man's Bluff," "Election Day," "The Fourth of July at Old Centre Square," "Going to and Returning from Boarding School," "The Country Wedding," and " Perry's Victory."
