In 1915, Sterner rallied a group of printmakers together to raise the general quality of American prints. The founders of the Painter-Gravers of America included, along with Sterner, Childe Hassam, Bellows, & George Elmer Brown. He became a member of the National Academy, won a bronze medal at the Paris Exposition of 1900; gold medal at Munich in 1905, a bronze at Buffalo Exposition in 1901, and Carnegie Prize in 1941. He was President of Soc. of Illustrators, 1907-09. Offered here is an original chalk drawing, unsigned. We belief this is a study for a series of paintings he did of surgeons in the operating room. Provenance: the Sterner summer home estate sale held 1980s in Mass. We purchased a majority of the drawings and prints offered in that sale.
