Maurer, Alfred Henry
Alfred Henry Maurer (môr´ər), 1868–1932, American painter, b. New York City. He was apprenticed as a lithographer, taught himself painting, and went to Europe in 1897, studying briefly at the Académie Julian, Paris. While in Paris he was the first American painter to take a significant interest in fauvist and cubist painting. Most of his later work retains this influence; his paintings vary from elongated female heads to subtly restrained and balanced still lifes. Among his works in museums are Two Heads (Berkshire Mus., Pittsfield, Mass.); Still Life with Pears (Addison Gall., Andover, Mass.); and Self-Portrait with a Hat (Walker Art Center, Milwaukee).
