Jon Schueler was born in Milwaukee in 1916 and studied at the California School of Fine Arts from 1949-51 where his teachers included Clyfford Still and Richard Diebenkorn. In ’51 he moved to New York where Still introduced him to Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Ad Reinhardt and Mark Rothko. For a while Schueler’s career progressed in step with the younger members of the legendary New York School: he was taken up by celebrated dealer Leo Castelli and his work began to be collected by public and private collections across America. In 1957 he made his first visit to Mallaig, a fishing village on the west coast of Scotland. On returning to New York, memories of Scotland informed his paintings throughout the 60s. In 1970 he returned to Mallaig where he lived until 1975, and where he spent time each year until his death in 1992. He was essentially an abstract painter, his work not unrelated to that of Rothko or Still, but his subject is always grounded in nature – especially in the light and atmosphere of the Scottish west coast. Schueler’s work has been collected by and exhibited at many distinguished American institutions including the Whitney Museum in New York and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
