Georg von Peschke


The islands of Skyros (the home of Peschke's wife Faltaina) and Santorini feature frequently in his work.

Landscapes and Still Lives


Peschke rarely took commissions for portraits, but frequently painted his family, friends, and inhabitants of Skyros.



Peschke served as an architect and archaeological illustrator for several American projects in Greece, including Corinth, Isthmia, and Olynthus.
