Peter Baumgras (born January 4, 1827 in Bad Homburg, Germany, October 18, 1903 in Syracuse, N.Y.) was a German-American painter, lithographer and art professor.


Life

Peter Baumgras studied painting at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Friedrich August von Kaulbach and Karl Schorn.

After graduation he worked as a lithographer and miniaturist. In 1849 he joined the Munich Kunstverein, but remained only until 1852. In 1853 he emigrated to the USA. He lived first in New York, but later moved to his family in Syracuse, New York. From 1857 to 1877 Peter Baumgras was an art teacher at Gallaudet College, Washington, D.C. During this time, he played a significant role in the development of contemporary American art, especially his famous Portrait of Abraham Lincoln of 1865.

In the American Civil War, the Secession War (1861-1865), Baumgras served as an ambulance at the "Army of the Potomac" of the Northern States. He also worked as an assistant professor at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

After a one-year trip to California and Vancouver, Canada, Baumgras settled in Chicago in 1870. From 1877 to 1878 he was professor of art at the University of Illinois.
