Carl Rungius

Artist Bio

Carl Rungius left his home in Berlin in 1894 to come to the United States to roam, hunt and paint America’s big game animals. For the next fifty years, Rungius developed an expressive, dramatic approach to depicting America’s high country game animals on canvas, rooted in naturalism but not at all photographic. Rungius’s skills grew through his association with naturalists like Caspar Whitney and William Hornaday, the director of the New York Zoological Society (now the Bronx Zoo). His long trips to the Rockies, Alberta and the Yukon in the first decade of the 20th century gave rise to his signature style.
