Adelheid Dietrich was born in Wittenberg, Germany, her teacher was her father, painter Eduard Dietrich (1803-1877). For a full twenty years, from 1850 to 1870, Adelheid's paintings were included in various exhibitions across Germany, where they were admired for their "extremely careful execution."  Of the approximately fifty traceable works by her hand, nearly all are flower paintings characterized by a crystalline intensity, and painted in the finest detail with extraordinary technical facility--notably in the draftsmanship which is doubtless a testament to her father's excellent tutelage.  She also painted fruit still lives, and combination flower-and-fruit pieces, with the same dazzling precision.  Adelheid nearly always dated her works in addition to signing them with her full name in inconspicuous places in the compositions.
