Beautiful Still Life Oil Painting on Canvas
By well listed Artist Henry George Keller
HENRY GEORGE KELLER N.A.
Keller, a leading painter in Cleveland, was born at sea, off Nova Scotia on April 3, 1869. His earliest training was in Karlsruhe, Germany under Hermann Baisch (1846-1894), then at the Cleveland School of Art, the Cincinnati Fine Arts Academy and the Art Students League in New York. At the end of his stay in Munich, he won a silver medal. The list of Keller's exhibition activities is truly amazing — from local venues in Cleveland to Chicago (including a special show of his wash drawings in May of 1920), Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and New York, his works were on view year by year. The Cleveland Museum of Art presented him with awards on numerous occasions and in 1939, he was elected to the National Academy of Design. His painting Circus Day was on display at the Golden Gate International Exposition in S.F. The Whitney Museum has Keller's charcoal and watercolor, Bird Rock, California (1925).
