This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born near Bayreuth, Bavaria on March 22, 1864.  Kress came to the U.S. in the 1880s to avoid the military draft.  For a few years he lived and painted in Pittsburgh, PA before establishing a billboard company in Kansas City.  In 1905 he settled in San Francisco into a studio at 2166 Market Street.  Shortly after the disaster of 1906 he became the president of the Sign, Scene & Pictorial Painters Union.  With his son, Fred, he painted scenery in the local theatres, restaurants, etc.  He painted a few small landscapes in his leisure.  Kress died in San Francisco on July 5, 1919.
