Carl Heuser was a portrait and genre painter who was born in Munich in 1827. He is believed to be the father of the artist Christian Heuser (1863-1942) who painted similar subjects. He specialised in painting highly detailed portraits of Bavarian and Swabian men and women. Many of his works feature local men smoking meerschaum pipes or women in their formal costumes and hair styles. His style is similar to that of artists such as the Austrian painter Carl Kronberger (1841-1921).
