Louis J. Feuchter (1885 – 1957) was an American artist born in Baltimore, Maryland. Even as a young child, he was bound for artistic success, receiving a scholarship to the Maryland Institute of Art at age 12. In young adulthood, he frequently visited the Eastern Shore of Maryland, where he began painting the workboats that filled the Chesapeake Bay. His attention to detail and his ability to masterfully capture his surroundings is evident in many of his paintings, including Caradora Schooner, and Pungy Wave. Some of his best known works are owned by the Maryland Historical Society, the Calvert Marine Museum and the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum.
