Jean Mannheim, born on November 18, 1863, in Bad Kreuznach, Germany, was an esteemed artist and educator known for his California Impressionist paintings. After being drafted into the German Army, Mannheim fled to France, where he honed his artistic skills at the Académie Delécluse and Académie Colarossi in Paris, studying under renowned artists Paul-Louis Delance and William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

In 1884, Mannheim immigrated to Illinois and began teaching at the Decatur Art School. Among his notable students were artists Roy Brown and Charles Crocker. During the 1880s, he married Pauline McNett from Mendota, but the marriage ended in divorce. He later married Eunice Drennan from Decatur in 1902. Mannheim's teaching career took him to Frank Brangwyn's school in London and the Denver Art School in 1903.

By 1908, Mannheim and his wife settled in Pasadena, California. He built his house and art studio there at 500 South Arroyo Boulevard, which became a favorite setting for his landscape paintings. He resided in proximity to Ernest A. Batchelder and became a member of the California Art Club.

In 1912, Mannheim played a prominent role in establishing the Stickney Memorial Art School in Los Angeles, along with Channel Pickering "C.P." Townsley. This influential art school operated until 1934, nurturing talents such as Marie Boening Kendall and Effie Anderson Smith, among others.
