This biography from the Archives of AskART:
An abstract painter who lived in New York City; Amagansett, Long Island, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, Harry Nadler is described as a "formalist abstract painter of the 1960s-90s whose works were marked by their rich colors, transparencies, and labyrinthine constructions. —The attempt to capture in a purely abstract imagery the quintessential quality of light and contour that emanate from a particular landscape is a hazardous pictorial ambition, but Mr. Nadler has met the challenge of this problem with remarkable success.˜ (Hilton Kramer, The New York Times, April 27, 1974.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following biographical information is provided, June 2010, by Helen Sturges Nadler, widow of the artist.

Harry Nadler was born in Los Angeles in 1930, was graduated from UCLA with BA in 1956 and MA in 1958.   He showed there at the Dwan Gallery, traveled to Spain to study Goya DISASTERS OF WAR on a Fulbright Scholarship, then moved to NYC to live and work. 

After working at the Brooklyn Museum and New York University, he joined the faculty of Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT.  In 1971, he moved to Albuquerque, N.M. to teach at the University of New Mexico, while keeping his home and studio in Amagansett, N.Y.  He worked at the Tamarind Institute in lithography on many occasions.

During these years, he had one-man shows at New York galleries, such as Dorsky Gallery, Bertha Schaefer Gallery, Benson Gallery (Bridgehampton, N.Y.), Gruenbaum Gallery, and participated in many exhibitions as well.  His work is included in many museum collections such as Guggenheim Museum, Pennsylvania Academy, Fine Arts Museum of Santa Fe, Detroit Museum of Art.  Posthumously, he had exhibitions at Vered Gallery in Easthampton, N.Y., David Findlay Jr., in NYC, and Gallery 4 in Tiverton, R.I.

Mr. Nadler worked in many different media, using color and structure in a sensuous way.  His work was abstract for the most part and comtemplative in feeling.  He used geometry, (in his later work, the Golden Mean), to make the bones for his color-space, using the sumptiousness of his materials, to create a timeless space.

He worked in his studio till his death in November of 1990.
