He emigrated to the U.S in 1923, and is best known for his lithographs of New York City in the 1920s and depictions of western life in Colorado and New Mexico in the 1920s through the 1940s. He settled in Denver, Colorado, and worked as Art Advisor to the Denver Art Museum from 1926-1931. Arnold Rönnebeck was married to muralist Louise Harrington Emerson (1901-1980).
