This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Hugo A. Possner (1859-1933)

Born in Prussia in 1859.  Possner immigrated to the United States in 1870.   By 1880 he was painting murals in bars in New Haven, Connecticut.  For 25 years he taught art in Provincetown, Rhode Island while active in art movements in Boston and painting portraits in New Haven, Hartford, and Waterbury.

In 1912 he settled in Los Angeles and advertised as a portrait painter and commercial artist until 1932.  It is believed that he then returned to his native land and died in 1933.

Exhibited: Daniell Gallery (Los Angeles), 1911, 1915.

Works held: Orange County (CA) Museum.
