Biography  
Karl Buehr


One of the early Chicago artists to adopt Impressionism, Karl Buehr became a figure and landscape painter.  As a figure painter, his specialty became "gorgeously colored images of young women on porches overlooking brilliant summertime gardens." (Kennedy 98) His later work often showed a female figure with serious expression engaging the viewer with a direct stare.  In his landscapes, he was noted for his strong coloration.  In a December 1896 student exhibition at the Art Institute, a reviewer for the Chicago Times Herald described Buehr's landscapes as "blithe and joyous" with "country roads brilliant in sunlight . . . fields rich in summer verdure, under soft skies painted in a high, musical key." (Gerdts 68)
