Walter Emerson Baum Furniture

American, 1884-1956

Born of Pennsylvania Dutch extraction on December 14, 1884, Walter Baum painted among the villages and cities of these people.

A pupil of W. T.

The artist was a recipient of many awards, including the bronze medal from the American Artists' Exhibition in Philadelphia; the Jennie Sesnan Gold Medal from the Pennsylvania Academy; the Zabriskie Prize from the American Watercolor Society; and the Purchase Prize from the Buck Hill Art Association.

He exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy Annual Oil and Watercolor Exhibition; the Corcoran Art Gallery Biennial, Washington, D.C.; the National Academy of Design, New York; the Chicago Art Institute; and at many others throughout the country.

Baum's paintings are represented in many private and permanent collections, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Toledo Art Museum, National Academy of Design, and the collection of the late President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
