egon and joan teichert




Hart was born in Cairo, Illinois, and for the most part was self-taught, although, he spent some time at the Chicago Art Institute and the Academie Julian in Paris. No doubt, his impatience with academic learning caused him to leave, but he was encouraged by, and learned from his artist friends. Hart was more content living the simple life over affluence and critic recognition. The small amount of money he received from sign painting, and stage designs for movie sets, was used for his travels to warm and distant places. Traveling to Mexico, Central America, North Africa, the Caribbean and South Seas, Hart, experienced life with excitement, amusement, and empathy. More than eighty prints portray his vagabond encounters on paper, in an experimental manner, rather than conventional. The use of broad strokes, liquid tusche washes, sandpaper, roulette, and monotype, helped to achieve a painter like quality in his work. Hart's images show exuberance in the everyday life of working people at cockfights, fiestas, outdoor markets, and leisure activities. This was an artist that loved creating images, and the people, seen, in them.
