Joseph Lauber (1855 - 1948)

Born in Westphalia, Germany, Joseph Lauber immigrated to the United States in 1864 and settled in New York City.  There he became a pupil of Walter Shirlaw, William Merritt Chase, and John LaFarge.  Although he worked primarily as a mural painter, producing murals for churches in New York City, Connecticut and Pennsylvania, and for the Apellate Court in New York City, he spent time painting at popular New England seaside destinations such as Gloucester, Massachusetts
