Artist Biography: Henry Hulsmann was born in Germany, February 1, 1849 and came to this country at the age of 19, initially living in Baltimore. He married Albertina Glende in Clinton, Iowa, in 1878. About a year later the family, which eventually grew to include four daughters and a son, moved to Chicago where the artist became a naturalized US citizen in 1895. Later they made their home in Oak Park and Elmhurst. In 1929 they moved to Belvidere, Illinois, where, after six years of continuing ill health he died on March 26, 1930. Hulsmann’s training is presently unknown. He is listed in the censuses for 1900 – 1920 as living in Chicago, Illinois and his occupation is listed as “Artist, Landscape.” His works carried a somewhat distinctive signature: “Hulsmann” in block letters with a line coming from the last “n” and extending back under the name. Additionally, one of Hulsmann’s daughters, Lillian, was apparently also an artist; in the 1910 census she was living at the family address and is listed as an “Artist, Landscape.” She married Otto Miller in 1914, but she may have continued signing her name as L. Hulsmann and painted in her father's style.
