Biography from Bradford Trust Fine Arts:

Julius G. Sommer (early 20th c.)  was a painter and illustrator who lived in New York City at 841 West End Avenue.  He studied at the Art Students League, was a member of the Art Institute of Graphic Artists and, most importantly, a member of the Society of Independent Artists from it formation in 1917.  This prestigious group had the support of such society members as Mrs. W.K. Vanderbilt and Mrs. Harry Payne Whitney.

Sommer was among the artists who exhibited at the First Annual Exhibit of The Society of Independent Artists , held April 10, 1917 on the ground floor of the Grand Central Palace on Lexington Avenue.  Two paintings by Sommer, titled “Erehwon I” and “Erehwon 2" are listed in the Society’s book as having been in that exhibit.  This exhibit had George Bellows and Rockwell Kent as members of their hanging committee.  Julius’s wife, Lillian Sommer, exhibited a batik silk hanging in that exhibit also.

Sommer also exhibited at an Architectural League of New York show during the same period.

He was affiliated with To-day’s Magazine during his career, a fashion and fiction magazine popular in the early 1900’s.
