from Le National Illustré, by Bahr (1895)

Johann Bahr was originally a machine-builder, before he started working as a painter and illustrator in Berlin-Friedenau. He did many sea travels and his illustrated memories have appeared in books. He founded the German guild for illustrators in 1896, and became its president. He was a regular contributor to Fliegende Blätter and Lüstige Blätter, and was one of the early artists that worked with sequential stories.
