George Frederick Muendel (1871 - 1948)  Artworks >>

George Frederick Muendel was born in West Hoboken, New Jersey in 1871. He began his career as a jewelry and silver designer for Tiffany and Company. Later, he studied with Leonard Ochtman who formed the Greenwich Society of Artists, and under Ochtman he began his love for landscape painting. Muendel became interested in the change in light and always tried to work during a specific time of day to capture the right light and essence in his paintings. He worked with "free and vigorous" brushstrokes to blend Realism with Impressionism in "an enveloping shimmering atmosphere." He exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Silvermine Guild of Arts and the Carnegie Institute and died in January of 1948. Source askart.com
