Alfred Juergens (1866-c.1934)

Alfred Juergens was born in Chicago on August 5th, 1866. He began his artistic education there, where he studied at several institutions, most notably the Chicago Academy of Design.  Juergens, then traveled in Munich where he studied under Kochler and the Munich Royal Academy, where he was also a pupil of Wilhelm von Diez.

The artist was particularly preoccupied with mural decorations. He was a member of several organizations of note: Munich Artists Association, Artists Association of Germany, and the International Society of Fine Arts.  His awards include among others silver medals at Madrid and Munich and a bronze medal at the Panama Pacific Exposition of 1915.

While he depicted many different subjects, his favorites were religious scenes, which he painted earlier in his career, and flowers and tranquil genre scenes from later in his life. Many of his works were exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago during the twenties and at the National Academy of Design.

The three works shown at the National Academy of Design (NAD) in New York were more in the later vein while his early symbolic paintings were more often shown in Chicago.  His earliest exhibited work, "Hide and Seek," was shown at the NAD in 1908, where he later exhibited in 1928 and 1930. His works exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago John the Baptist at the River Jordan and Lilac Time.
