Biography: "Nuderscher was a self-trained artist who became known for his industrial scenes of his hometown -St. Louis – and for Ozark landscape paintings. He was also an active member of the regional art scene; he was the last survivor of the Riverfront Art Colony, in 1936 he supervised the city's WPA (Works Progress Administration) projects, he was a member of the National Association of Mural Painters and of the Saint Louis Artist Guild where he won ten first prizes, he served as president of the Independent Artists of St. Louis, and he was one of the founding members of the Society of Ozark Painters. Nuderscher and the other Ozark painters were attracted to the region for the delicate colors produced by the hazy atmosphere. In the earlier years of the Society, the region was seen as a sanctuary of beauty from the horrors and ugliness of World War I, and works by Society artists, like Nuderscher, frequently retained an emphasis on a quiet, restful composition featuring soft, pleasant colors."
