Albert Beck Wenzell

American Illustrator and painter

1864 - 1917

Albert Beck Wenzell was born in Detroit, Michigan to a wealthy family in 1864 and later received solid academic art education during seven years in Munich under Stahuber and Loefftz and in Paris at the Académie Julien under Gustave Boulanger and Jules Lefebvre.

He created numerous illustrations for short stories and also illustrated many serialized novels that were published in 1896 and 1900.

Albert was awarded medals in the Pan American Exposition in Buffalo, New York in 1901, and from the Louisiana Purchase centennial exposition in St. Louis in 1904.

Albert Beck Wenzell was one of the founding members and president a of the Society of Illustrators. He also became a member of the Mural Painter's Association in 1903.

"American artists excel, it seems to me, in color. There are half a dozen men here now—I don't refer to several well known American artists living abroad—no, there are New York men whose work is not familiar, but whose talent is the first order. It is most unfortunate that our home talent is not more appreciated and encouraged. I have little sympathy with the idea that an artist must live abroad in some so-called art centre. If a man be an artist it makes little difference where he lives."
