Academy as a pupil from Wilhelm of Diez. In 1903 he studied in Holland the paintings from Mauve and the Maris brothers. Since 1910 he painted in Belgium his first shrimpfishermen-paintings. In the same year he married his pupuil Helga Boeckmann. On a trip to Paris in 1912 he was very impressed of the paintings by modern artistis as Cézanne, van Gogh and Gauguin. Specially characterizing was his stay in North America from 1913 to 1921. Seyler lived there at times as farmer in Wisconsin. There he painted many Indian pictures. In 1924 he was appointed professor at the Munich Academy. After having lived at Sylt in the 30ies during the Second World War he stayed in Icking and in Hirschau at the Chiemsee.
