Biography   August Abelmann

Born in Germany on Nov. 9, 1866, August Abelmann was trained as a wood engraver but soon turned to half-tone processes.  Arriving in the U.S. in 1889, he continued his profession in Chicago while studying art at the Art Institute of Chicago.

From 1913 he and daughter Kate led a nomadic existence.  They sketched and painted extensively in the U.S. and in foreign countries.  Upon moving to California in 1928, Abelmann settled in Pasadena and remained there until his death on May 12, 1963.
