Biography

Born in 1867 in Hanover, Germany, the son of an architect. He had his first exhibition at the age of eighteen - a group of portraits shown in Berlin. In 1892 he came to America where he became a successful architect - so successful that, in 1912, he was able to 'retire' and spend a year in Germany, exhibiting again and continuing his art studies. Returning to America in 1913, he showed a painting in the Armory and, two years later, Alfred Stieglitz gave him a one-man show at '291'. He exhibited there regularly from 1915 to 1928 and, during the same period, he was also shown at the Bourgeois and Neumann Galleries. In 1926 he moved to South Braintree, Mass, where he lived until his death in 1938.
