Well, here's a bit of a surprise. I'd never heard of Erik Koeppel but assumed he was a little known 19th century artist. However, having googled him I've just discovered he was born in 1980! According to a website I found, 'Koeppel’s mastery of traditional techniques has led him to become one of very few young contemporary artists whose work is regularly exhibited with historic masters of the 19th and early 20th Centuries'. You can see more of his paintings on Pinterest , including this one -- unusual in that it's a portrait, as he mostly seems to do landscapes. This is called 'Portrait of a Romantic'.
