Albert Henry Krehbiel was an American impressionist painter born in Denmark, Iowa. Krehbiel showed artistic talent from an early age and decided to study at the Art Institute of Chicago. Krehbiel was a strong student and was awarded a scholarship to continue his studies in France. In 1903, Krehbiel enrolled at the leading, Académie Julian in Paris. Krehbiel studied under Jean-Paul Laurens, who was known as a history and mural painter. Krehbiel’s reputation continued to soar in Paris, as he continuously won awards for his excellence in painting. Krehbiel’s awards included multiple gold medals from the Académie Julian and the Prix de Rome. Two of Krehbiel’s paintings were exhibited in the Paris Salon.
Krehbiel returned to Chicago around 1906, where he began to receive commissions to paint public murals. Krehbiel designed and pained murals for the Chicago Juvenile Court and the Supreme and Appellate Court Rooms of the Illinois Supreme Court Building.
While Krehbiel was based out of Chicago, his work became known across the United States as he travelled to art colonies in California and New Mexico. Krehbiel was associated with both the Santa Fe Art Colony and the Taos Society of Artists in New Mexico. Krehbiel’s network of artists included George Bellows, Victor Higgins, Stuart Davis and John French Sloan.
While Krehbiel enjoyed the colorful and expansive landscape of the southwest, he was dedicated to supporting the Chicago art community. Krehbiel was an instructor at the Art Institute of Chicago for nearly forty years. Krehbiel taught the fundamentals of painting and urged his students to paint outside in the plein-air, impressionist tradition. Krehbiel brought many of his students from Chicago to Saugatuck (Ox-bow), Michigan to paint the Kalamazoo River.
Krehbiel was a prolific painter of landscapes and cityscapes, portraying numerous locations in the United States. Krehbiel never limited himself to one particular type of landscape, but painted rural, urban and maritime scenes. Krehbiel was constantly exhibiting in Chicago and Michigan, and well as in travelling shows throughout the country.
Krehbiel’s paintings are now in major museums, libraries and private collections across the country. Many of his paintings of the Midwest are owned by the Art Institute of Chicago. Do you think you own a painting by Albert Henry Krehbiel? Contact us. We are the experts on Albert Henry Krehbiel.
