Fritz Althaus (1863-1962)

Fritz Althaus was born in Kent, and first learned to draw with the help of his mother who was a talented amateur portrait-painter. His father, born in Germany, was a Professor of Music. He studied under the artist Axel H Haig, an artist who boarded with his family, followed by tutelage at St Martin's School of Art, the Westminster School of Art and the Royal Institution. Until 1893 he made his home in London but later moved to Exeter. There he could paint along the coasts as far as Cornwall, including the Channel Islands, as well as cities such as Oxford and Cambridge.

Because of the Great War, Althaus changed his name to Frederick B KERR around 1915.
