re: Edward R. Sitzman

A painter, lecturer, and teacher, Edward Sitzman lived in Indianapolis, Indiana where his studio was located in 1929 in the Columbus Securities Building. He painted the landscapes of his region, and many of his canvases depicted the lush forest and colorful foliage. Siztman frequently depicted beech trees. He was born in Cincinnati and exhibited artistic inclinations from a young age. He went on to study at the Cincinnati Art Academy with Frank Duveneck and Henry Farney and also studied in London, Munich, and Paris. After returning from abroad, Sitzman found work at a lithographic firm in Pittsburgh while continuing his studies at the Carnegie Art Institute. He relocated to Indianapolis in 1897. Edward Sitzman was a member of the Hoosier Salon, the Indiana Art Club, the Indianapolis Art Association, and the Chicago Galleries Association. He helped arrange the first Hoosier Salon Exhibition. Sitzman died in his studio, from a self-inflicted gunshot, in March of 1949.
