Description: ALBERT STERNER (1863-1946) Original lithograph, unsigned, approx. 15.5 x 10 in. image. Slight signs of handling near bottom but in very good condition. STERNER'S influence is seen in the works of both Rockwell Kent and George Bellows; he introduced each of them to the technique of lithography and put them in touch with the 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. His work [esp. his mono-prints] has always been somewhat scarce. Purchased from the Sterner Estate sale held many years ago and guarantee the authenticity of this lithograph. Portrait of unidentified man.
