FEATURED ARTIST – Joseph Meert (1905-1990)

Joseph Meert, an abstract expressionist and friend of Jackson Pollock actually saved Pollock’s life one night. On a sub-zero winter night of 1943 or 1944, Pollock came to visit Meert at his apartment, however Pollock had passed out drunk in a snowdrift and would have frozen to death had it not been for Meert.

In the 1920s, he was a resident of Kansas City, Kansas living at 1014 Tenny Street and taught at the Kansas City Art Institute from 1935 – 1941. Despite his extensive exhibition record, Meert never found financial success. In 1980, after the death of his wife, his medical and mental condition began to deteriorate, but he was misdiagnosed with schizophrenia and became a ward of a state nursing home. In 1985.
