|Name: ||Edward Edmondson, Jr.|
|Dates: ||(1830 - 1883)|
|Biography: ||Edward Edmondson, Jr., was the son of a Dayton, Ohio, leather goods and used-furniture dealer, to whom he was apprenticed until he was twenty. The artist’s obituary mentions a single lesson with a local portrait painter as his only formal training in art. A Dayton business directory lists Edmondson as a portrait painter for the first time in 1858.1 It is likely that he received additional formal training between that date and the end of his apprenticeship eight years earlier, possibly from Charles Soule, Sr. (1809-1869), who taught other local artists their craft.2 Edmondson remained in Dayton for most of his career. In 1880 he moved to California, where he died three years later.|
