Carl Krafft

Carl Krafft

1884 - 1938

Carl Krafft was born in Reading, Ohio, and is a descendant of the 16th century German sculptor Adam Krafft. Adam enjoyed a successful career as a commercial designer while he studied painting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago at night. Between 1908 and 1912, Krafft spent his summers at the Brown County art colony. In 1914, he sought out a more unspoiled region to paint and settled in the Ozark Mountains in south-central Missouri. Krafft was joined by like-minded landscapists, and under Krafft, they formed the Society of Ozark Painters. Krafft's contemporaries viewed his work in nationalistic terms and expressed his patriotism through the love of the land. Krafft conveyed nature's many moods, while maintaining its mystery and glory. Krafft's work is represented at the Art institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Corcoran Museum in Washington, D. C., and the Los Angeles County Museum.
