Prolific artist William Eyden Jr. was born in Richmond, Indiana in 1893, the son of an immigrant artist from Hanover, Germany. In Indiana, he studied initially under his father then under T.C. Steele, John Seaford, John Elwood Bundy, Daniel Graber and Charles Hawthorne. Eyden moved to New York City where he studied at the Art Students League under William Merritt Chase. He maintained a studio in Greenwich Village for a number of years.

While in New York, Eyden painted many urban street scenes but his greatest love was painting in nature. He is known for beech woodland scenes he painted in Indiana, his home state, and in the mountains around Asheville, North Carolina where he lived during the 1930's. Eyden was a member of the Asheville Art Association, as well as the Hoosier Salon, the Bundy Club, and the Richmond Art Association. He exhibited at the very first Hoosier Salon in Chicago and consistently after that. He was a member of the Brown County Art Gallery Association from 1965-1981. Works by William Eyden can be found in the permanent collections of the Indiana State Museum, Richmond Art Museum Ball State University and Indiana University.

He was also an accomplished violinist and wrote a column for the poetry journal, Cornucopia.
