Edward Frederick Ertz was born in Canfield, Illinois. After working in Chicago as an engraver, designer, and illustrator, he went to New Orleans, where he was involved in founding the New Orleans Artists’ Association and the New Orleans Etching Club. In 1885 he moved to New York to work for the Century magazine. Three years later Ertz went to Paris to study with Jules-Joseph Lefebvre (1836–1912), Jean-Joseph-Benjamin Constant (1845–1902), and Paul-Louis Delance (1848–1924). In 1889 he exhibited at the Paris Salon, and from 1892 until 1899 he was professor of drawing and painting at the Académie Delecluse in Paris. Ertz then settled in England, where he exhibited frequently and received numerous awards. He also showed his works in Paris, Munich, and the United States and belonged to various art organizations in England, France, and the U.S., including the Royal Society of British Artists, the British Water-colour Society, and the Royal Society of Arts. His wife, Ethel Horsfall Ertz, was a painter of miniatures. Edward Ertz’s works are in private and public collections, including the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Public Art Gallery in Liverpool.
