American painter Arnold Ronnebeck was German-born under the name Rönnebeck and Americanized his name after his immigration to the United States, where he was naturalized in 1932. He was initially successful in his native country as a sculptor and graphic artist, and was a member of the avant-gardes in the 1920s. In the US, he was especially known for his lithographs of New York City scenes, landscapes of New Mexico and Colorado, as well as depictions of Indian dances.
Ronnebeck initially studied architecture as his father wished, but then switched to painting in 1908 and went to Paris. In World War I he was wounded twice and awarded the Iron Cross. In the US, he married painter Louise Emerson. From 1926-31 Ronnebeck headed the Denver Art Museum.
