Biography August Will
The following biography is from James S Hamilton, Jr. , a researcher of New Jersey artists:
August Will (his full name was John M. August Will, but he signed his paintings and was always known as August Will) was born in Weimar, Germany in 1834. Nothing is known of his early arts education, if any, or his other schooling in Germany. It is known that Will was in the United States at least by 1855 (at the age of 21) since there is a pen and ink drawing of the New York City Post Office done by him in that year.
Apparently, shortly after his arrival in the United States, Will established his residence in Jersey City and was to live there for the rest of his life. He was well known as an artist in and around Jersey City
