Deiker Carl Friedrich was born on April 3, 1836 in Wetzlar. He was a Prussian animal painter. Deiker was specialised in animal genres related to hunting and wildlife. He also illustrated magazines and books on hunting.

Carl Friedrich Deiker was the son of Friedrich Deiker, a painter and drawing teacher at the high school. His older brother, Johannes Deiker, with whom he learned to draw after their father’s death in 1843, was a painter specialising in hunting scenes.

Deiker attended the Hanau drawing Academy, where he was a pupil of the director Theodor Pélissier (1794-1863), and then studied at Johann Wilhelm Schirmer’s studio in Carlsruhe.

In 1859, in the Reinhardswald forest, he collected studies for his large hunting paintings. From 1861 he had his own studio in Karlsruhe.

From 1864, he lived in Düsseldorf and painted wild boar, deer fighting, foxes, game birds.
Deiker stands in the baroque tradition of hunting and animal painters.

The painter died in Dusseldorf on March 19, 1892. Today, his paintings can be found in private and public collections, including in the Cologne Museum “Dogs Chasing their Prey”.
