Known best for his landscape, interior, marine, and animal oil paintings, Fredrick Rondel is a highly respected academician who was the only formal instructor to have taught Winslow Homer. Rondel was born in Paris, where he studied under romantic, marine and landscape painters, Theodore Gudin and Auguste Jugelet. In 1855, Rondel moved to the United States, establishing himself in New York City, when he became an associate member of the National Academy of Design. After an extensive stay in Europe, Rondel returned to the National Academy to teach. Rondel is noted for combining broad, deep perspective and subtle light in his landscape and marine paintings, reflecting the romanticism of his former teachers. His paintings are primarily of American scenes of New York as well as the New England countryside. Rondel's works have been exhibited at the National Academy of Design and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, amongst others.
