Jon Schueler


ARTstor and the estate of Jon Schueler have collaborated to share more than 300 images of works by the painter in the Digital Library.

A second generation Abstract Expressionist celebrated for his gestural abstractions of the 1950s, Schueler turned to more pastoral paintings in the 1960s inspired by the small fishing village of Mallaig on the Sound of Sleat, Scotland, where he first rented a house in 1957. His first solo exhibition was held at the Stable Gallery in New York in 1954, followed by exhibitions at the Leo Castelli Gallery in 1957 and 1959, and his paintings were the subject of a show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975.

Jon Schueler's work is represented in many public collections, including those at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh.
