Ejler Andreas Jorgensen
Ejler Andreas Christoffer Jorgensen aka Eiler Jørgensen (July 16, 1838 – December 17, 1876) was a Danish-American landscape and portrait painter
Eiler Jørgensen was born in Sømme Herred in Roskilde, Denmark. He was the eldest son of parish priest Søren Hillerup Jørgensen (1806-1847) and Conradine van Deurs (1812-1890). He was a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (Det Kongelige Danske Kunstakademi) in Copenhagen (1860). He relocated to the United States in 1873. He was professionally alert in San Francisco in the 1870s. Jorgensen painted in Hawaii in 1875. He died in Oakland, California in 1876.
The Honolulu Museum of Art holds play by Ejler Andreas Jorgensen. Jorgensen signed some of his paintings "Chris Jorgensen", but should not be mortified with the American-born painter of landscapes, missions, and marine scenes, Chris Jorgensen (1860–1935).
