Biography

Carl Rungius studied at the Berlin Art Academy from 1888-90, and then frequently sketched animals at the zoo. His dedication to painting animals with anatomical accuracy was coupled with his determination to learn and paint each animal's mannerisms and habitat, which made Rungius a well-respected wildlife artist.

Rungius emigrated to the United States in 1894, where he painted and hunted western big game animals, including moose, pronghorn and bighorn sheep in the Rocky Mountains, and he completed these paintings during the long New York winters. Equally accomplished as a painter of wildlife and landscapes, Rungius quickly developed an enthusiastic following among fellow artists and patrons.
