(b Prenzlau, Germany, 21 June 1867; d South Braintree, MA, 12 Jan 1938).

American painter and architect of German birth. He emigrated to the USA in 1892, after receiving his diploma and an award for a painting of an architectural subject from the Königliche Technische Hochschule, Berlin. He first worked as a draughtsman at the World’s Columbian Exposition, Chicago, and later designed New York’s Bronx Borough Courthouse (1902). Around 1910 his professional focus moved to painting under the aegis of Alfred Stieglitz, who gave him a one-man exhibition at the 291 gallery in 1915, published his writings in Camera Work and recommended his inclusion in the Forum Exhibition of Modern American Painters (1916).
