Adolf Heinrich-H studied theology for four years before he chose to go in the footsteps of his father, Heinrich H's, as architecture painter. Probably Heinrich-H to some extent was his father's Assistant, and he snuggled close to his art with his carefully executed and detail-rich Church-and Castle motifs. Heinrich-H's also included the old parties of the circle motif in particular German cities and of Fanø-interiors with women in traditional costumes as spot-shapes, like he painted individual portraits. In his later years was Heinrich-H a very used animal painter of horses and dogs as a specialty.
