This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A painter and teacher, Frederick Fursman was born in El Paso, Illinois and studied in Paris at the Academy Julian and in Chicago at the Art Institute. Early in his career, he painted in France in an impressionist style, depicting the landscape of Brittany and figures in that landscape.

In 1910, he and fellow artist Walter Marshall Clute founded a summer school of painting in Saugatuck, Michigan, and there Fursman did impressionist paintings that emphasized pattern and repetition more than the short rapid strokes of his French paintings. By 1913 and 1914, when he had returned to Brittany, he was less and less focused on representation in his paintings and turning increasingly to abstraction with sensational color that showed the influence of the French fauvre painters.

Fursman was a member of the Saugatuck Art Association, and exhibition venues included the Pennsylvania Academy, Corcoran Gallery and the Art Institute of Chicago. His work is in the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art.
