Konrad Juestel

March 31, 1924-November 27, 2001

Born in Wagrain, Austria, in 1924, expressionist painter and craftsman, Konrad Juestel brought European traditions to the United States. Juestel studied in Salzburg under The Austrian master painter Oskar Kokoschka, whose "School of Seeing pushed him toward an expressionistic style.


Upon arrival in the United States in 1959, Juestel worked as a stage desinger, stained glass designer, upholsterer, furniture maker, interior designer, painter and art teacher.

Until his death in 2001, Juestel resided in northern Indiana's Suman Valley in a house he built and furnished himself. He worked in many mediums including etching, lithography, monoprint, oil, silk-screen, watercolor and wood. Juestel's approach to art was exploratory. Once seized by an idea, he was driven to discover it's full potential by experimenting in many mediums. The results yielded a fascinating, ever evolving work of art.

Much of the Frankfort Library's furniture has been handmade by Juestel. His paintings are exhibited in our permanent art collection and new pieces of his work can be seen in the Friends of the Library art show each November.


The "Konrad Juestel Video" by Shelley White may be borrowed on Interlibrary loan or purchased for $26.00 plus $5.00 shipping and handling.
