Gari Melchers was a prominent American painter and muralist of German descent in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. His painting style was characterized by impressionism, colorism and naturalism. He established studios in the Netherlands, Virginia, and New York City over the course of his career. Melchers studied in Düsseldorf at the Academy of Arts and at the Académie Julian and the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1903 he was married to Corinne Mackall (1880-1953), a Baltimore painter.
In 1906 Melchers was appointed fine arts advisor to the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences in Savannah, for which he acquired more than 70 works of art.
