This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Junction City, Kansas, Bertram Hartman was a modernist painter whose subjects included city views of New York City, floral still life, landscapes, nudes and polo scenes.  He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Royal Academy in Munich, and in Paris.

In 1916, he wandered through and painted Canyon de Chelly in Arizona and returned again in 1917.  Three of his paintings from this time are in the collection at Hubbell Trading Post at Ganado.  Their style, emotive with bright color, suggests early modernism influenced by Fauvism.

Hartman was a member of the Chicago Society of Artists, the American Watercolor Society, the American Society of Painters, Sculptors and Graphic Artists, and the Mural Painters of America.  Exhibition venues include the Pan-Pacific Exposition of 1915, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Society of Independent Artists, Carnegie Institute, Corcoran Gallery, and Whitney Museum of American Art.

A long-time resident of New York City, he was represented there by the Montross Gallery.
