Alfred Juergens (1866-1934)

About this artwork

Alfred Juergens was born in Chicago, the son of a decorative painter. He studied art at the Academy of Design in Chicago and continued his training in Munich and Paris. By the turn of the century, Juergens had established his studio in Oak Park, Illinois, and regularly exhibited his still lifes and landscapes at the Art Institute of Chicago. His sketchbook contains thirteen loose leaves, with sketches and numerous names and addresses. Due to the varying types of paper and conditions of these leaves, they appear to have been culled from different notebooks.
