Hoerman, Carl 1885-1955
Hoerman probably was a self-taught artist. He painted in a realistic manner with slightly simplified drawing and vivid color, known as a painter of the Lake Michigan shoreline and sand dunes. In 1927, Hoerman and his artist wife, Christiana Ackermann, began making trips to the Southwest where they painted desert and mountain scenes and, most especially, the Grand Canyon. They also enjoyed painting other exotic landscape and genre scenes from their travels to Europe, Mexico, and North Africa.
