A famous painter

Rudolph Albert Huthsteiner was a famous german painter around the turn of last century. He made several portraits of german nobles, e,g. the king of Württemberg Wilhelm II.

Also some landscape views are exisiting. 

A very interesting fact is, that Rudolph, who was born in Düsseldorf, lived in Stuttgart and was an arts professor in Munich, visited a small market place known as Osterhofen and painted the very famous abbey there. This place is quite close (less than 20km) to locations where all my ancestors lived at that time. Wondering whether he ever recognized that there are also Hutsteiners living around this place, too ?
