Peter Becker was a painter, draftsman, etcher, but above all a watercolorist and lithographer. From 1844 to 1851 he attended the Städel Art Institute in Frankfurt am Main and studied with Jakob Becker and Friedrich Maximilian Hessemer. He lived alternately in Frankfurt or in the Taunus region. He enjoyed hiking and explored the Rhine-Main region, Hesse and, in 1880, Westphalia along the way. In 1898 he was appointed a Prussian professor. Becker created especially late romantic landscapes, mostly vedute, with medieval monuments, mostly executed by his friend Eduard Steinle. It was less paintings than drawings and watercolors in which he recorded his landscapes, such as the view of Frankfurt am Main. From 185o etchings and later lithographs were added, with which he published whole albums with views of his wanderings. Peter Becker’s works are in private collections and public museums in Berlin, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Kassel, Cologne, Marburg, Nuremberg and Weimar.
