This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sporting artist who lives in Southampton, New York, Henry Koehler was born in Louisville, Kentucky.  He graduated from Yale University, and shortly after that had illustrations published by The New Yorker, Town and Country, and Sports Illustrated.

His first exhibition was in 1961, and since then he has exhibited in over 60 venues in London, Paris, Dublin, Johannesburg and the United States. His works are in the collections of the National Racing Museum in Saratoga and the National Horse Racing Museum in Newmarket.

He has painted several commission portraits of well-known thoroughbreds but prefers genre pieces depicting horse-racing, polo games, and hunting in the field with horses.  He also does studies of jockey figures before and after their race; sensitive studies of jockeys before and after racing.

An July-October 2003 exhibition, Elegant Impressions of Turf and Field, was held at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame, Saratoga Springs.

Christie's New York, December 2003

Biography from Chisholm Gallery:

Henry Koehler's long association with the sporting life began soon after his graduation from Yale, when his illustrations appeared in The New Yorker, Town & Country and Sports Illustrated.  His first exhibition was in 1961 and since that time he has shown 58 times in London, Paris, Dublin, Johannesburg and throughout the United States. 

Racing and hunting come alive under his brush.  He also offers us behind-the-scenes looks at jockeys, horses, dogs and the special accoutrements of each sport. Among his  collectors are prominent people from the political, social and sports arena.

His works can be seen at the National Racing Museum in Saratoga and at the National Horse Racing Museum at Newmarket in Great Britain.  Mr. Koehler lives in Southampton, New York.
