Feodor Von Luerzer was born in Austria in 1851. Von Luerzer immigrated to the United States in 1886. He lived in Milwaukee and Cleveland before moving to Duluth, Minnesota in 1889. He closed his art studio there in 1904 and left for California for a one-year stay to paint the giant redwoods in the Calaveras Grove, the Mother Lode country and along the Monterey coast.
He later moved to the state of Washington and made painting trips to the Cascade Mountains, the South Dakota Badlands, and Coeur D'Alene area of Idaho.
