All in a Day's Work:
from Heritage to Artist
by Karl J. Kuerner
A short distance off U. S. Route 1 on Ring Road in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, sits the Kuerner farm. For decades, America’s most well-known artist, Andrew Wyeth, used this setting for hundreds of his paintings. Nestled in the quiet Delaware County countryside, the farm now provides the setting for America’s most promising young artist, Karl J. Kuerner.
Tutored by Carolyn Wyeth and mentored by Andy, Karl is exhibiting the talent that has already brought him the acclaim of peers and recognition through one-man shows and other local and statewide exhibitions.
In this, his first book of collected works, we find the inspiration that permeates many of his paintings: His heritage as the son and grandson of a farming family. Drawn from memories of his youth, this heritage is evinced in the earthen-like images that are the hallmark of the Brandywine artist’s tradition.
