Biographical / Historical:
Craig Sterling is an American art photographer who studied at the Brooks Institute of Photography, Santa Barbara, California. He cites the photography of Ansel Adams, Arnold Newman, and Eugene Atget as having had the greatest influence on his work. Sterling, who works exclusively in black-and-white, using a wide range of equipment, makes his own silver gelatin and pigment prints. He often prefers the square format of Hasselblad cameras. He has maintained a studio at the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria, Virginia since 2001.

His photographs, which display a largely pictorialist style, are in the collections of other institutions, such as the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the National Gallery of Art, and the Oakland Museum. His work has appeared in group exhibitions at the Art League Gallery (Alexandria Virginia), the University of Maine Museum of Art (Bangor, Maine), the Baldwin Photographic Gallery (Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro, Tenn.), the Oakland Museum (Oakland, California), the Philip Weiss Gallery (London), among many others, especially in the Washington and Virginia areas.

His other photographic activities have included teaching at the Art League, Alexandria, Va.; PhotoWorks at Glen Echo Park, Bethesda, Md.; and the Smithsonian Institution Resident Associate Program. He also served as curator for an exhibition, "The Photographs of Alexander Gardner," at the Washington Center for Photography. He has a Web site at http://www.craigsterling.com/.

Biographical / Historical:
Charles Hoffbauer (1875-1957) was a painter primarily in Paris, France, and New York, NY.

Hoffbauer was born in Paris and came to the United States in 1909 and established himself in the New York art community. Eventually, he became represented by the Knoedler Galleries and maintained a close, professional relationship with Roland Knoedler throughout his life. Before moving to the U.S., Hoffbauer attended the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris for three years before entering mandatory military service in Normandy. Once his military duty was fulfilled in 1897, he returned to Paris to begin his career as an artist. Years later he returned to France to fight in World War I.

Hoffbauer produced murals for the Confederate Memorial Institute, Missouri State Capitol, Arras town hall in France, New England Life Insurance Company, and Hayden Planetarium. In the 1930s, he proposed the idea of an animated, historical film based on Napoleon's invasion of Russia in 1812 to Walt Disney. Hoffbauer prepared a set of paintings titled "Napoleon's Russian Campaign" to support this idea. Disney declined to make the film, however he hired Hoffbauer as a research artist and remained at Disney for several years.

Hoffbauer died in Boston in 1957.
