Born in Germany Konrad Cramer immigrated to the United States in 1911 and settled in Woodstock, NY where he became a leading figure in an already-thriving artistsʼ community. In his formative years in Munich, he was influenced by the Cubist works of Braque and Picasso, as well as by the Blue Rider Group artists, including Kandinsky and Franz Marc. Cramer was one of the first artists to create abstract works in America in the early 1910s. Toward the end of the decade, however, he grew dissatisfied with pure abstraction and turned to a cubist-inspired style, as exemplified by Woodstock Landscape.
