Alfred Maurer



Alfred Maurer

(b New York, 21 April 1868; d New York, 4 Aug 1932).

American painter. He studied at the National Academy of Design, New York, in 1884 and briefly at the Académie Julian, Paris, during 1897. He received critical success with academic paintings of single female figures in interiors and genre scenes of café society, which reflected the influence of the work of James Abbott McNeill Whistler and William Merritt Chase, for example At the Café (c. 1905; St Petersburg, Hermitage). His long residence in Paris from 1897, his participation in various independent salons and his association with Leo and Gertrude Stein led to his interest in avant-garde art. He may have been one of a group of Americans who studied briefly with Henri Matisse. By 1907 he was producing vigorously painted Fauvist landscapes, such as Landscape with Red Tree (c. 1907–8; New York, Mr and Mrs John C. Marin jr priv. col.), which he exhibited in New York at Alfred Stieglitz’s gallery, 291, in 1909 and at the Folsom Gallery in 1913.
