Fernand Lungren

(American, 1857-1932)


Fernand Lungren was born in Maryland and raised in Toledo, Ohio.  He studied briefly in Cincinnati before moving on to the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.  After working as an illustrator in New York, he continued his studies in Paris at the Academie Julien.  Lungren eventually moved back to Cincinnati where he met J.H. Sharp and Henry Farny who encouraged him to paint in the West as they had done.  In 1892, he was hired by the Santa Fe Railway to sketch along its route.  In 1903, he moved to California and for the remaining twenty-nine years of his life settled in Santa Barbara, where he helped found the Santa Barbara Art School and left much of his work to Santa Barbara College.
