Biography   Edward, Jr. Edmondson


A still-life and portrait painter, Edward Edmondson, Jr. was one of Dayton, Ohio's leading artists from the early 1850's until 1880, when he and his family moved to California.  His father, a tanner, expected him to join the family business, but he was far more interested in being an artist like his early mentor, Charles Soule. 

Like most Ohio artists outside the major cities, Edmondson built up his reputation, year by year, at the state fair, winning seven awards in 1867 alone.  The Dayton Art Institute now owns nearly thirty of his canvases.
