Scholderer was a German painter who moved from Frankfurt to work in Paris in the late 1860s. He appears in Fantin-Latour’s celebrated group portrait of Impressionist painters, L’Atelier des Batignolles (1870; Paris, Musée d'Orsay). In 1871, he settled in London where he remained until 1899 and enjoyed his most productive years as a regular exhibitor of his still lifes and portraits.

The trompe l’oeil aspect of this beautiful trophée de chasse corresponds with the still lifes by the well-known American painters of the same period such as W.M. Harnett and J.F.Peto.
