Biography from the Archives of askART

Joseph Mortimer Lichtenauer, Jr. (1876-1966)

In the archives of the 1932 Los Angeles Olympic Games, Joseph Mortimer Lichtenauer, Jr. is listed as a 5'9" tall, 56 years old member of the US Team - competing in the event of Sports Themed Art with his painting The Archer.

By the time of this event the artist was a well established painter-sculptor-muralist not only in America but in Europe as well.   Born in New York, he began his studies at the highly regarded Art Students League.  Eventually he moved on to the Academie Julian, in Paris, France (the first art school to admit female art students) and later studied, worked and traveled extensively in Italy.  

Around 1903 he became a regular exhibitor (receiving a medal in 1905) at the Paris Salon which brought him the attention of art collectors and dealers.  

After returning to the States he lived in New York, Los Angeles and Westport, CT.
