Johann Georg Meyer (1813 – 1886), commonly known as Meyer von Bremen, was a German painter who specialized in Biblical, peasant, and family scenes.
Started painting biblical subjects, then traveled in the Hessian, Bavarian, and Swiss mountain districts, studying the people for his genre scenes, which have since become wildly known.
