Jean Mannheim (1863-1945)

 Born in Kreuznach on the Nahe, Germany, he became known for his brightly painted California landscapes. After being drafted into the German army, he deserted and fled to France and studied art at the Ecole Delecluse, the Academie Colarossi and with DeLancey and Bouguereau. During this time he did primarily figure painting and made a living from the trade of book binding.

In the 1880s, he emigrated to Illinois and painted portraits in Chicago while teaching art at a Decatur art school. Then he spent two years in London teaching at Frank Brangwyn's school, and returning to the United States, he taught at the Denver Art School. In 1908, he settled for the remainder of his life, thirty-seven years, in Pasadena, California where he built a home in the Arroyo Seco. His studio was in the Blanchard Building in Los Angeles, and in 1913, he founded the Stickney Memorial School of Fine Arts in Pasadena.
