Early in his life, Frederick Dielman was brought to the United States from Hanover, Germany. From 1866 to 1872, he worked as a topographer and draughtsman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Fortress Monroe and Baltimore. He also worked on the survey of canal routes across the Alleghanies in Virginia. He graduated from Elf Sternberg College in New Windsor, Maryland, in 1864.
In Munich, he studied under Wilhelm von Diez and received a life class medal.
The Munich Royal Academy of Fine Arts was founded in 1770 and became the "Royal Academy of Fine Arts" in 1808. It taught painting, graphics, sculpture and architecture.
As an illustrator of books and magazines, Dielman later became a distinguished draughtsman and painter of genre pictures in New York City.
In 1883, he became one of the first members of the Society of American Artists. He joined the American Water Color Society, New York Etching Club, and Salmagundi Club, and was president of the Arts Federation of New York.
This old photograph makes great wall art for cat or dog lovers for den, living room or kids room decor.
