The project is in conjunction with the assistance of The Rosenberg Library in Galveston Texas, The Museum of Texan Cultures in San Antonio Texas, the Texas State Capital, the Carl Haberlin Freisen Museum in Wyk Auf Fohr, Germany, and other related institutions and collectors.

This is an important endeavor for the preservation of a local artist who lived and worked in the Houston and Galveston areas from 1885 until 1907. So far we have been able to discover more than 250 works by this important artist that were not included in the last book about the artist written by James McGuire and published in 1976.

William “Ray” Simpson, Sr., owner of over twenty works by the artist and an expert on the subjects and style of Julius Stockfleth, is looking for any information or artwork that you may have to help in the compilation.

Catalogue Raisonné

The catalogue raisonné is expected to go to press by the fall of 2024.

JULIUS STOCKFLETH (American/Texas 1857-1935) A PAINTING, "View Of Galveston From Pelican Island," 1907.
