Title

Photographs of Henry Reuterdahl

Description

Black and white photograph of artist Henry Reuterdahl and photograph of him in his studio. Born in Sweden in 1870, Reuterdahl died in 1925 in Washington, DC and is buried at Arlington Cemetery.

He was a Lieutenant in the US Navy and is best known for his paintings of Navy warships. He also designed posters to support the war effort during World War I. He painted landscapes as well, including Winter in Weehawken.

Reuterdahl bought Karl Bitter's home and atelier atop the Palsades (the site of current day Hamilton Park), after Bitter died in a trolley accident in 1915.

He was a member of the Society of Illustrators and the American Watercolor Society and exhibited his work in the 1913 Armory Show, although he was not considered a modernist. He also taught at the Art Students League of New York.
