Biography

Wharton Esherick, who studied in Philadelphia, was primarily a wood sculptor, but sometimes devoted himself to painting. Above all, he was fascinated by the discovery of artefacts in a new design or a new form, and became one of the leading artists in the field of non-traditional designs. In addition to furniture and furnishings he also developed complete interiors. He was an uncle of well-known architect Joseph Esherick. In 1972 his home studio was converted into the Wharton Esherick Museum outside of Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
