Painter and etcher, Edward Hagedorn was born in Oakland, California on January 26, 1902. Hagedorn's mother died at childbirth, and he was raised by his maternal grandmother. During the 1920s he worked out of a studio in the old Montgomery Block of San Francisco and in the 1930s was employed by the Works Progress Administration. A lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay area, the latter part of his life was spent in Berkeley where he maintained a studio-residence at 2436 Woolsey Street until his death on Dec. 14, 1982. As well as oils and etchings, Hagedorn did many pencil and charcoal drawings of nudes.
