Always acknowledged as one of the foremost magazine and book illustrators, Koerner’s popularity as a painter came posthumously with recognition of his broad talent and ability to capture the “Western myth through symbols of an earlier, less complicated, infinitely more moral land of ample time and room to roam

* Diane Koerner Schwartz, granddaughter of W.H.D. Koerner, noted in April 2008 that the family had recently learned the artist was born in Lunden, Schleswog-Holstein, Germany rather than Lun, Germany, as previously indicated in Mr. Hassrick's article. (04/22/2008)
