Herbert Schmalz was born in England to a German father - Schmalz is best known under that name, but changed his name to Carmichael in 1918.
Schmalz’s art training
was fairly conventional, including studying at South Kensington and the
Royal Academy Schools, and then abroad in Antwerp. Schmalz knew
Leighton, living near him in Kensington, and marrying the sister of
Dorothy Dene, who was one of Leighton’s favorite models.
developed a style influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites, but more soft,
showing single figures or groups, over-pious religious scenes and
sentimental lovers, and some topographical paintings. Schmalz also
produced Orientalist paintings featuring girls with pots, camels etc
somewhat akin to work by Goodall. All of this was well calculated to
impress the Victorian public, and much of Schmalz paintings were widely
reproduced in magazines and as prints.
