Christian Petersen: Urban Artist, 1900 - 1934
Christian Petersen spent the last half of his sculpting career in Iowa, from 1933 through 1955, and was consequently viewed as a Midwestern, regionalist artist. After his family's emigration from Denmark when he was nine years old, Christian Petersen was raised on the East Coast where he was artistically trained at the Newark Technical School and the Fawcett School of Design in New Jersey, and later studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Art Students League of New York. In 1920, he took an apprenticeship with the Boston sculptor Henry Hudson Kitson. Christian Petersen then maintained an active design and fine arts studio for more than a decade in Attleboro, Massachusetts, which was a short train ride from Providence, Rhode Island - a center of jewelry design and production.
This publication examines Christian Petersen's early career and illustrates his evolution from craft designer to fine art sculptor and how that development ultimately lead him to the Midwest and Iowa State College.
This publication contains contributions from Mary C. Petersen, Lynette L. Pohlman, and Jerome L. Thompson.
Paperback, 208 pages, 53 images, 7 x 9 inches
