Frank Sauerwein (1871 - 1910)

Born in Yonkers, New York, (or Cantonsville, NJ) on March 22, 1871, Frank Sauerwein is the son of noted painter Charles D. Sauerwein. Raised in Philadelphia, the younger Sauerwein studied with his father and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Philadelphia School of Industrial Art. After his art training he moved to Denver where he was active until the turn of the century. About 1902 Sauerwein moved to Los Angeles where he painted several mission scenes. After becoming ill with tuberculosis, he moved to Taos, New Mexico, in 1906. The last few months of his short life were spent in Stamford, Connecticut, where he had gone for a cure. He died on June 14, 1910. Many of his paintings were signed Sauerwen (without the "i"). The majority of his work is composed of Western landscapes and the culture of the Pueblo Indians.
