Lot Details

Depicting the well known American fast-food chain restaurant, "Nedicks" (1953) is a signature work on paper by the prolific painter Henry Koerner (American, 1915-1991). With expressive gestural qualities, Koerner would capture current events, sketching his surroundings and often working directly from life. "Nedicks" displays the artist's interest in proportion, color and perspective pulled from the memories of life experiences, to convey a deeper investigation of memory. This work is in excellent condition, measuring 12.25 x 12.25 inches (31.1 x 31.1 cm), with larger framed dimensions listed approximately.

Never pigeon-holed, always inventive, Henry Koerner was an Austrian born, American original whose drawings and paintings are hard to classify but easy for viewers to access. Shifting in styles throughout his life, he gained fame as a graphic designer during the second World War and later was commissioned by the US Army to sketch the Nuremberg Trials. Shortly after the end of the war, Koerner held the first gallery show in post-war Germany displaying a style later called Magic Realism. He worked for Time magazine in the 1950s and 60s, producing over 50 painted covers. His work is included in the Art Institute of Chicago, the Whitney Museum, Dallas Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum amongst others.
