Dudley Huppler
Robert Cozzolino

"All the while Huppler was drawing, drawing,
drawing . . . "
—John Wilde

From the 1940s through the 1960s, Dudley Huppler (1917–1988) moved in the brightest literary and artistic circles in New York, Chicago, Boulder, and his native Wisconsin, counting among his friends John Wilde, Sylvia Fein, Harry Partch, George Platt Lynes, Paul Cadmus, Marianne Moore, Glenway Wescott, Tobias Schneebaum, Andy Warhol, and others. Moving between the commercial and fine art worlds, he created windows for Bonwit Teller and advertising art for Parker Pen and Henri Bendel but also exhibited in galleries; was featured in Art News, Flair, and Art Digest; and won fellowships for his art and writing. His work is marked by an unusual, meticulous technique, forming sensual and whimsical images of animals, nature, and the human body from tiny gradations of tonal dots.

Robert Cozzolino, art historian and guest curator of the Huppler exhibition at the Elvehjem Museum, has published work on Ivan Albright and John Wilde.
