(1895 - 1941)
Emil Ganso was active/lived in New York, Iowa / Germany. Emil Ganso is known for nude figure, modernist-leaning landscape and harbor scene painting.
Of Emil Ganzo, it was written that he, "a jovial sandy-haired young man walked into New York's Weyhe Gallery and said: "I am a baker. My name is Emil Ganso." With him he had a portfolio of drawings, which he explained he had done during his spare time. The pictures were not good enough to exhibit, but Weyhe was impressed enough to sign Ganzo to a long contract, gave him a small weekly allowance on which to live and continue to paint. Since then Ganso has proved that Weyhe made no mistake. In 1933 Ganso won a Guggenheim Fellowship and his paintings now hang in the Addison Gallery of Art in Boston, the Los Angeles, Whitney, Denver Museums, Metropolitan, Detroit, Cleveland and Worcester, Mass. Museums."
