This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Carl Buchner was born in Somerset East, Cape Province. He studied languages at Wits and then art at Wits Tech Art School. He lectured at the Michaelis School in 1963, and, served on the selection boards for the Venice and Sao Paulo Biennali and various national exhibitions.

In his work Buchner reveals himself as a romantic humanist. His early work was mostly devoted to human subject matter, sensitively portrayed, with frequent use of palette knife, scumbling colours to create texture and colour variation. Later works exhibit modelling with brush to create three-dimensional plasticity. In the late fifties was influenced by the minimalist still life technique of Morandi. He was closely associated with Maurice von Essche and one can clearly see the influence of his style on Buchner over the years.
