About

Silk-screen (serigraph) by Harry Shokler ( 1896 - 1978). Like many of his contemporaries during the Depression of the 1930s, Shokler could no longer earn a living by selling oil paintings and looked to other mediums. He developed his own techniques of silk screens, characterized by vivid saturated colors, such as Brooklyn Heights Esplanade. He was one of the earliest pioneers of modern serigraph Shokler was born in Ohio, and studied at the Cincinnati Art Academy, the Chester Springs Academy (Pennsylvania), and the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts. A travelling fellowship enabled him to spend several early painting years in Europe and North Africa – a fruitful period that culminated in a one-man show of his work in Paris at the Galerie de Marsan. He also exhibited at the Salon des Beaux Arts in Paris. In addition to oil painting, Shokler's other media were etchings and wood engravings. One of the early developers of silk screen printmaking, he was a member of the Silk Screen Group, president of the National Serigraph Society, and a teacher at the Brooklyn Museum of Art School, actively promoting the medium's acceptance through teaching and lecturing. His book on serigraphy, Artists Manual for Silk Screen Printmaking, has gone through many printings. During his career, he has been included in numerous national group exhibitions and has had over fifty one-man shows in various parts of the country. His serigraphs are held in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum, the Syracuse Museum, the Carnegie Institute and the Princeton Print Club.
