History

Ludwig Lund was born 20 September 1908 in Odense, Denmark. In 1920, when Ludwig was 12 years old, his Danish family emigrated to the United States. From an early age, Ludwig showed a talent for drawing and was largely a self-taught artist.

During the Second World War, he served as a Technical Sergeant in the Intelligence Division, where he illustrated maps as part of his work.

Lund was made the Official Army Illustrator of the 2nd Air Division and was commissioned to paint a series of watercolours of the Division's activities. Some of the watercolours were given to the Commander of the 2nd Air Division, General James Pratt Hodges, by his staff as a present in December, 1943.
