This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, in 1901, Edwin Knutesen lived his early years in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. He attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and in 1923 enrolled in the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. There he studied under teachers George Oberteuffer, Hugh Breckenridge, and Daniel Garber.

Returning to Milwaukee, he worked for the "Wisconsin News" and attended evening art classes at the Milwaukee State Normal School. His next two years, 1925-26, were spent studying in Paris, France, at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. His studio was next door to the studio of artist Adolf Dehn, whom he knew well.

When Mr. Knutesen returned to Milwaukee, he continued his art studies at the Milwaukee State Teachers College under the direction of Gustave Moeller. He earned a three-year diploma, then went to New Orleans where he taught in an art school for a year. In the late thirties he was employed on the Federal Arts Project. In subsequent years he worked for an advertising school and several art agencies.

Mr. Knutesen was a member of the Milwaukee Businessmen's Sketch Club. He entered paintings regularly in the annual Wisconsin State Fair and Wisconsin Painters Shows. He won a number of awards. His oil painting, "Still Life", was included in the 1959 Wisconsin Painters and Sculptors Exhibition at the Milwaukee Art Center.

After a lifetime of interest in the arts, Mr. Knutesen died January 23, 1961.

His philosophical statement "Art is reflecting and accentuating man's own nature at its best" is graphically illustrated in his works.
