Andrew F. Bunner (1841-1897)

Andrew Fisher Bunner was born in 1841 in New York City, and he studied there and in Europe. In fact, his career included extended travels in France, Holland, Germany, and Italy (1871-76) and especially Venice again, where he lived from 1883-1886. He never became completely expatriated, however, but retained his strongest ties to the United States. 

He exhibited every year 1865-1896 at the National Academy of Design, most years at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1877-1890), and frequently at the Boston Art Club and the Brooklyn Art Association as well as the Paris Salon, 1878.

Residing for several years in South Hampton NY, he often painted summers on Long Island or along the Hudson River. His work is in a number of museum collections, from the Met in NYC to CT (Yale), PA, CO, and NM. Elected to Associate of the National Academy in 1880, Bunner might well have become a full member except for his relatively early death at age 56 in 1897.
