John Ignaz Kohler 1908 - 1994 graduated from 1922 to 1925 as a porcelain painter at the "Kunstgewerbeschule Zwickau". After being a student at the "Staatliche Grafische Akademie" in Leipzig from 1926 to 1932, he settled in Berlin in 1933 as a freelance painter and graphic artist. In 1942 he married the lyric poet, an expressive dancer from the school of Mary Wigman and later watercolorist Alice Dublé. During the Nazi regime, he was banned from working and exhibiting. From 1945 to 1955 he lived in Prien am Chiemsee. There he developed an independent artistic style, which was characterized by the encounter with Franz Xaver Fuhr, who was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich from 1946 to 1966. His works were exhibited at the Great Art Exhibitions in the House of Art in Munich. The market Prien has received numerous watercolors, printed graphics and designs as a gift from the artist's estate and presents his work in the village (autumn 2012). From 1955 he lived in Munich and had a friendship with the painters Max Hauschild and Andreas Bleeker. Kohler worked for many years on the board of the "Neue Münchner Künstlergenossenschaft", among others also as juror. He took part regularly in the large art exhibition in the Haus der Kunst, at many group and individual exhibitions. In 1961 he had a collective exhibition in the Schleswig-Holstein State Museum, Schloss Gottorf. In addition to watercolor and oil paintings, he also worked on prints, brush drawings with ink, sgraffito and mosaics. Many of his works are illustrated in books, calendars and postcards, and in the collection of important museums, such as the Staatliche Grafische Sammlung München and the Städtische Galerie in the Lenbachhaus Munich.1957 he received the Max Pechstein Prize, which is awarded by the city of Zwickau every two years, and in 1976 the Munich Water Lily Prize.
