Biography from Boston Art Club:
Edward Widmayer (1923 – 2010)

Born in New York City, Widmayer exhibited an early talent for painting and copied religious paintings at the age of 13 while a student at parochial school.  Upon graduation, he attended the Pratt Institute.  At one time he was the chauffeur for Peggy Guggenheim and became close to the early, inner scene of the NYC Abstract Art scene.   

Widmayer enlisted in the Military where he served during WWII.  He returned to Pratt after the War to continue his education where he studied with Hans Hofmann.  He spent part of 1951 in Paris studying with Fernand Léger and Amadée Ozenfant.  He returned to NYC to live, paint and exhibit Abstract Art in The Village.  He worked as an Illustrator and as a model for major national advertising. 

He moved to New Hampshire in the 1970’s where he remained until his death.
