Eugene Von Bruenchenhein
Eugene Von Bruenchenhein at the Foundation for Self Taught Artists. "...A sculptor, ceramist, painter, photographer, poet, amateur botanist, and evolutionist, Eugene Von Bruenchenhein was a veritable Renaissance man. He may have learned painting from his sign-painter father or his stepmother, a philosophical writer and hobbyist painter, but that was merely one facet of the secret creative impulse that this longtime greenhouse employee and bakery worker harnessed to overfill his small Milwaukee home with reams of writing and artwork. Von Bruenchenhein’s work may be considered in three categories: photographs, paintings, and sculptures."
