Biography Olaf Brauner
Olaf Martinius Brauner, painter, sculptor and educator, was born in Christiania, Norway in 1869. He received his early training as an artist from his father, Julius F. Brauner, one of the most celebrated engravers in Norwegian art history. As a young man, he came to the Boston area and enrolled first at the Massachusetts Normal School and then at the School of Art at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. There he studied under William Morris Hunt and Otto Grundmann and with fellow students Childe Hassam, Frank Benson & Edmund Tarbell. It was from these gentlemen that he learned of Celia Thaxter's summer artist's colony on Appledore Island at the Isles of Shoals located off of the New Hampshire Seacoast.
