Leopold Graf von Kalkreuth (1855-1928) was a German painter, known for portraits and landscapes. Although he painted some portraits remarkable for their power of expression, he devoted himself principally to depicting with relentless realism the monotonous life of the fishing folk on the sea-coast, and of the peasants in the fields. He was one of the founders of the secessionist movement. From 1885 to 1890 he was professor at the Weimar Art School, and in 1895 he became a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe.
