First Edition, 1925. "Emil Fuchs (1866-1929) was an Austrian and American sculptor, medallist, painter, and author who worked in Vienna, London and New York. He painted portraits of Queen Victoria and Edward VII and was fashionable among London high society in the early 20th century. Fuchs began going to the United States in 1905, primarily to paint portraits of wealthy socialites. In 1915 during World War I, 'a wave of anti-German sentiment' swept England so, to escape it he moved permanently to New York, producing more works there and offering assistance with the war effort. He became a US citizen in 1924. In anticipation of a death with great suffering from cancer he shot himself at the Hotel des Artistes in New York on 13 January 1929. His will created a foundation which put his art on view as a permanent exhibit, and for this he left $500,000 plus artworks to the public."
