Brief Biography-Alfred Isidore Römer was the older brother of artist Edward Mateusz Römer. His father was also an amateur artist, writer and social activist. He studied with the artist Kanuty Rusiecki before travelling to Paris for a study period. After settling back in Utena County, he became involved in the January Uprising, and the forces imprisoned him in the Dinaburg Fortress. The fortress still stands today and houses the Mark Rothko Arts Centre. He entered the Munich Fine Arts Academy on his release, where he befriended Albert von Keller, whom he travelled to Italy with to work and study. In Belarus, he married Countess Wanda Sulistrovska and lived on her estate and went through his most formative work period. He worked in Kraków at the Polish Academy of Learning before spending his last years at the estate.
