(Born in 1921, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Lived and worked in South Africa.)
Carl Buchner was a painter most well-known for his portraits, landscapes, still life, interiors, street scenes, and most notably, the human figure which was the most recurrent motif in his work. His early works were devoted to the human subject matter, with the figures sensitively portrayed, their elongated forms depicted with expressionist distortion, covered in romantic colors. He used the palette knife primarily, switching to a brush in later works.
Buchner’s work is represented in important collections at the Pretoria Art Museum, UNISA, and Rembrandt Art Foundation. He received the Artists of Fame and Promise Award in 1963. He participated in numerous shows in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Argentina, as well as the 1982 Cape Town Triennial.
