Biography Carl Jennewein
Carl Jennewein was born in Stuttgart, Germany, in 1890, one of eight children of Emilia Weber and Louis Jennewein. (1) The father was a die engraver and permitted Paul to watch him work, which soon led to the son developing a love of drawing, engraving and etching. After it became apparent that traditional academics were not a path for the young artist to take, he was apprenticed to artisans at the Stuttgart art museum at age 13. For the next three years, he learned techniques of casting, modeling, and painting. He also took courses in art history and architectural drawing at the University of Stuttgart where he saw illustrations of work by the noted American architectural firm, McKim, Mead & White.
