This bowl is a top-notch example of Jason Schoeners enamel art! Please scroll down to read the artists biography about Jason Schoener. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1919, Schoener came from a family of distinguished American artists. He was the nephew of sculptor/painter William Zorach and his wife, painter Marguerite Zorach.Beginning in 1939, Schoener spent his summers at the Zorach family farm in Georgetown, Maine, where he helped with chores and studied art with his Uncle William. Jasons cousin, artist Dahlov Ipcar (the Zorachs daughter), was also part of those summer art sessions. In 1941 Schoener graduated from the Cleveland Institute School of Art and spent a year at the School of Architecture at Western Reserve University. He enrolled in the U. Naval Reserve at Northwestern University and was commissioned as an ensign in 1944, serving at the Eniwetok Atoll in the Pacific. After the war, Schoener began his teaching career at Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute School of Arts in Utica, NY while also earning a masters degree from Columbia. In 1951 he married Virginia Worley, and they moved to California, where Schoener served as an instructor, department chairman, and dean at California College of Arts and Crafts.
Meanwhile, Schoener continued to use his Georgetown home as a summer studio, while also finding time to travel to Europe and Latin America. Scenes he observed in Scotland, Greece and Latin America, in particular, found their way into many of his oil paintings. Other favorite subject matter included floral still life, naval operations scenes and, of course, land and seascapes from around Georgetown. Throughout his career, he worked in both oils and watercolor. Schoeners other teaching assignments included Mills College, and the Athens Technological Institute in Greece.
Over the span of almost two decades, Schoener had several solo exhibitions at the Midtown Gallery on East 57th Street in New York. In September of 1993, Schoener exhibited at the Boyden Gallery at St. In 1994, Schoener donated 21 of his paintings done during the war to the U. Schoener and his wife were in California at the time of his death in 1997.
