"Processional," Jewel-Toned Mural Study w/ Prayer Under Starlit Sky by Hoeckner

$7,750

About

Although Carl Hoeckner is best known for his sombre prints and paintings protesting the brutality of war, he is also known for a series of murals in public spaces across Chicago and the Midwest, so this brilliantly-hued painting may have served as a mural study. Here the artist depicts a long procession of figures in jewel-toned garments, their faces careworn and bent in prayer, facing toward a priest surrounded by a group of choir boys, all under a cobalt-blue sky. Starting in the mid-1920s, Hoeckner became interested in Industrial and war subjects, and in 1929 he became an instructor at the Art Institute of Chicago. In the 1930s he served as director of the graphics division of the Illinois Art Project of the Works Progress Administration. The medium is gouache on paper. (Dimensions include matte and frame; image size is 6.5 inches high by 23 inches wide.).
