Edward Kramer

Biography from the Archives of askART

Painter Edward Adam Kramer, born in the Bronx in 1866, became known for his depictions of forest scenes, especially from his many painting excursions to the Adirondacks. He exhibited fourteen paintings in the 1913 Armory Show in New York City and was the most successful in sales among American artists. Essentially little known at the time of the exhibition, as he is today, Kramer entered landscapes with titles including "Dawnlit", "Meditation", "Quiet", "Unseen" and "The Wood, Deep and Quiet". (By contrast, Edward Hopper sold the only painting he exhibited, the vividly illuminated Sailboat, his first and only sale for many years).

Kramer studied at the Royal Academy in Munich and the Academy Julian in Paris. He was a member of the American Association of Painters and Sculptors and exhibition venues included the National Academy of Design (1899) and the Art Institute of Chicago (1899).

Edward Adam Kramer died in 1941 in New York City.
