Worner, Howard L. (American/Pittsburgh, 1913-2006), Industrial Mill Scene with Workers, undated, watercolor and gouache on paper, signed lower right, 19 x 26.5 inches, framed 27 x 33 inches. Worner was a graduate of Philadelphia Museum School, now Philadelphia College of Art, and later was a professor for 32 years at Carnegie Tech / Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. In an oral history on Warhol's teachers, it was said that Warhol took Worner's Pictorial Illustration class and Worner called Andy "the only student with a saleable product." Worner was one of the country's leading industrial artists. He spent most of his working life in the heart of American industry-in Pittsburgh. And his work documents the industrial history of the city he called home for so many years. He joined the painting and design faculty at Carnegie Mellon University's College of Fine Arts in 1947 and taught there for 32 years. Many generations of art and design students-including Andy Warhol-were in his classes.
