The painter and graphic artist Lisbeth Lommel is one of the few women in the Chiemsee artistic landscape. She was born in Erlangen on 10 January 1877, but moved to Munich with her parents as a child. She trained as a language teacher in England before studying painting with Karoline Kempter at the Munich Artists' Association from 1901.
In 1904, she passed her state examination as a drawing teacher at the Kunstgewerbeverein in Munich. After longer stays in Dachau, Burghausen and Wasserburg am Inn, she acquired a small house on the Ratzinger Höhe near Prien. As an exhibitor at the south-east Bavarian artists' association "Welle" in Prien, she wrote herself into Chiemgau art history with her expressive paintings. She died in Prien am Chiemsee in 1970.

Her brother Friedrich Lommel, born on 26 May 1883 in Erlangen, was the only sculptor among the founding members of the "Welle". From 1903, after a year at the Basel School of Applied Arts, he studied at the Munich Art Academy, first under Wilhelm von Rümann and then presumably under Adolf von Hildebrand. He was awarded the title of professor in 1914. In the same year, he acquired a farm in Otterkring near Prien. From 1926, he led the sculpture class at the Munich School of Arts and Crafts. Lommel was a member of the "Munich Secession". His work, which was characterised by classical art, is largely forgotten today.
