George Matthew Bruestle

1871 - 1939

George Matthew Bruestle was born in New York City in 1871 to German immigrant parents. He began painting and drawing at an early age, and by 1886 he was a member of the Art Students League. He also began painting in Old Lyme, CT, and was an early member of the Old Lyme Art Colony when it officially formed in 1900. Bruestle studied painting in Paris, but spent most of his time going between his homes in New York City and Old Lyme. He worked as an illustrator for Harper's from 1897 - 1901. Bruestle was a member of the Society of American Artists, the National Arts Club, the Allied Artists of America, the Salmagundi Club, and the Lotus Club. His paintings have been exhibited at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Carnegie Institute, the Corcoran Gallery, the Lyme Art Association, the National Academy of Design, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Bruestle's paintings are currently represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Butler Institute of American Art, the Florence Griswold Museum, and the San Diego Museum of Art. Bruestle died in New Haven, CT, in 1939.
