Description
A collection of manuscripts, correspondence, ephemera related to the life and work of Western American artist Fernand Lungren.
Background
Fernand Lungren (1857-1932) was a Western American artist who originally came from Maryland. He enrolled in the Pennsylvania Academy in Philadelphia in 1876, and his first illustrations were published in Scribner's Magazine in 1879. Many of his works appeared in the pages of prominent magazines over the years, including Century, St. Nicholas, Harper's, and McClure's; other pieces were exhibited in museums and galleries worldwide. Lungren visited the Western United States for the first time in 1891, and moved to Los Angeles in 1903. In 1906, at the prompting of Stewart Edward White, Lungren moved to Santa Barbara and in 1920 he became the president of the Santa Barbara School of the Arts.
