Albert Edward Sterner (1863-1946) British

Albert Edward was born in London, England in 1863. He began taking drawing classes in 1875 at the Birmingham Art Institute while still attending Kings Edward's School. Although his family moved to America, Mr. Sterner stayed with relatives in Germany until about 1880. Rejoining his family in Chicago, he began working for a lithography firm and also painted stage scenery for the Grand Opera House, as well as doing some illustration. In 1885 Mr. Sterner established a studio in New York and began working for magazines such as Harper's, Scribner's, Century, and Collier's. He traveled frequently to Europe and in 1888 enrolled at the Academie Julian in Paris, where he studied with Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre. He continued to do illustration while also studying with Jean-Leon Gerome at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In 1891 Mr. Sterner first exhibited at the Paris Salon and received an honorable mention. In 1918 he returned to America and began teaching at the Arts Students League in New York. Many institutions that have presented exhibitions of his work were the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Carnegie Museum, and the Art Institute of Chicago. He also won several major awards, including the Carnegie Prize at the National Academy of Design in 1941. Mr. Sterner died in 1946.
