About the Artist | Art Images | Links

  William Eyden, Jr.

The Eyden names have been familiar to almost anyone with interest in the world of Indiana art. Eyden inherited his artistic talent from his father who was born in Hanover, Germany. He studied from John Bundy, Charles Hawthorne, Daniel Garber and William Merritt Chase at the New York Art Student League.

In addition to being a talented painter, Eyden was an accomplished violinist. He studied with Fredrick Hicks, professor of music at Earlham College.

For eleven years, he operated a gallery/studio in Greenwich Village, painting many New York street scenes. Yet despite his travels, his favorite subject matter would be the woodland scene of beech woods.

During his lifetime, he won numerous awards and honors, including a one-man show of his work in 1968 at McGuire Memorial Hall art galleries. On the closing day of the exhibition, he gave a painting demonstration. He was a consistent exhibitor in the Hoosier Salon and participated in the first salon held in Chicago.
