C. Winston Haberer (1905-1958)

C. Winston Haberer is, without doubt, Louisville’s greatest native-born printmaker. He was a 1922 Male High School graduate and studied at the Louisville Art School, where he was instructed in etching by Alexander J. Van Leshout. Van Leshout almost single-handedly started a printmaking revival in Louisville that continued until World War II. Haberer also studied in Chicago at the Art Institute school and the American Academy. Haberer and his mastery of printmaking were the subject a Newsweek magazine article in 1941. He was a member of the famous American regionalist group the Prairie Printmakers, along with such artists as Gustave Baumann, Howard Cook, John Steuart Curry, Gordon Grant, Alfred Hutty, Peter Hurd, Birger Sandzen and Levon West. Haberer prints are in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.; the University of Massachusetts Amherst; the Kentucky Historical Society; the Denver (Colo.) Art Museum; the University of Louisville; the New York Public Library; the Art Institute of Chicago; and many more.
