    Art Brokerage: Oscar Florianus Bluemner German Artist: B. 1867-1938 - Oscar Florianus Bluemner was born in 1867 in Hanover, Germany. Known for his expressive use of color and Cubist influenced works. After studying architecture and design in Berlin, Bluemner left Germany in 1892, moving to Chicago, where he was employed as a draftsman for the World's Columbian Exposition. He settled in New York in 1901, and his successful design for New York's Bronx Borough Courthouse in 1904 gave him recognition as an architect and designer. Disillusioned with public commissions, he spent the next few years designing private houses. Committed to his theories of color, he turned away from architecture to devote his life to painting. In 1913 Bluemner exhibited in the Armory Show and gained the support of Alfred Stieglitz, who in 1915 gave the artist a one-man exhibition at his 291 gallery and published Bluemner's work in Camera Work.
