Ferderik Vezin comes from a widely ramified family whose origins lie in France and who emigrated to Germany and later to Philadelphia. Frederik Vezin was born in Philadelphia himself and thanks to the close family connections he was able to start studying art at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in Germany at the age of twenty. From 1877 studied in the landscape class with Georg Heinrich Crola, Johann Peter Theodor Janssen and Karl Müller. In the secondary classes, it was mainly Julius Roeting, Eduard von Gebhard and Wilhelm Sohn who taught him. After completing his studies in 1883, he stayed in Düsseldorf except for a Munich interlude. In addition to portraits, he mainly painted genre pictures and landscapes.
From the park we can see the Benrath Castle, which is located in the south of Düsseldorf. The castle, built in the 18th century, was designed in the Rococo style by Nicolas Pigage. It is considered an important architectural synthesis of the arts in Düsseldorf. It is noteworthy that the castle was painted yellow in Vezin’s time – today it shines in pink. The extensive park is only hinted at. The trees cast their shadows over the park and partly on the castle, which is cut behind them. Vezin painted the view with great ease and suggest knowledge of impressionist painting. Through his family, Vezins works also became known and collected in the USA. In the Rhineland we can find his works in the Cologne City Museum, in the Malkasten and City Museum in Düsseldorf.
