Donald Baechler

Born 1956, Hartford, CT. Died 2022, New York City.



As a second-generation Pop artist, Baechler’s paintings and prints are a reflection of a passion for collecting pop images and objects. Combining these images with his own uninhibited style of painting, Baechler created what he called an “illusion of history.”Baechler studied at the Maryland Institute, College of Art (Baltimore), Cooper Union (New York), and the Staatliche Hochschule für bildende Künste, “Staedelschule” (Frankfurt am Main, Germany). His work is in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and The Centre George Pompidou, Musée National d’Art Moderne, Paris among other institutions worldwide.
