Artist Max Crouse was born in Germany around 1861, and appears in the 1911 Census living in Cheshire, with his occupation listed as painter (artist). Little else is known about him, although we do know that many Germans of his generation came to Britain to avoid being conscripted into the Prussian Army. We have two pieces by him in the collection.
