More About this Item


Description: ALBERT STERNER (1863-1946) Noted American artist. OFFERED HERE: ORIGINAL charcoal drawing unsigned, image size approx. 9-1/2 x 8 in. plus margins. The image is in very good condition. STERNER'S influence is seen in the works of both Rockwell Kent and George Bellows who he introduced to the technique of lithography and put in touch with master printer/artist Bolton Brown. 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. Sterner concentrated increasingly on portraits of famous people, for which ultimately he was to become best known. His personality, wit, charm, erudition, and talent endeared him to many of his famous patrons. His opinions - definite and energetically stated - were such that he took no nonsense from sitters, which included the nobility and gentry of three generations, among them, the Vanderbilts, Whitneys, Reids, Wideners, Armours, and members of the royal family of Siam. Provenance: From the Sterner Estate sale held in Massachusetts. Guaranteed authentic with no time limit
