Carl Rungius

1869 - 1959
Painter, Sculptor
Origin: Germany
Born: August 18, 1869, Berlin, Germany
Died: October 21, 1959, New York, New York

Carl Rungius studied at the Berlin Art Academy between 1888 and 1890. In Berlin, he frequently sketched animals at the zoo. His dedication to painting animals with anatomical accuracy coupled with his determination to learn and paint each animal's mannerisms and habitat made Rungius a well-respected wildlife artist. Rungius first visited the United States in 1894, and traveled to Cora, Wyoming, to hunt and sketch. Rungius decided to remain in the United States spending the next decade of summers in Wyoming and the remainder of the year in his New York studio. During this time, he painted and hunted western big game animals, including moose, pronghorn, and bighorn sheep in the Rocky Mountains, and he completed these paintings during the long New York winters.
