Albert Sterner

Though an American citizen born of American parents in London in 1863, Albert Edward Sterner studied drawing as a teenager at the Birmingham Art Institute in England. The dates are clouded, but he lived in Germany in Gaggenau and Freiburg from sometime in the late 1870s until he went to Chicago between 1879 and 1882. He worked with Walter Wilcox Burridge there, painting theater scenery, in addition to illustrating newspaper articles, and employment in the lithography business.

Though Sterner moved to New York City in 1885, for the next twenty years he was mainly in Europe. In Paris in 1886, he studied at the Academie Julien with Jules Lefebvre and Gustave Boulanger. He received numerous commissions for magazine illustrations.
