Charles Goeller was a celebrated Precisionsist during his short career, bringing a clarity and exactitude to his work that prefigured the concerns of photoreaslist painters decades in later. He studied and worked in Paris from 1923 to 1929, before joining the stable of the Charles Daniel Gallery upon his return to New York. Exhibiting alongside Charles Sheeler, Preston Dickinson, and Elsie Driggs, Goeller investigated the domestic and suburban subjects in a manner often compared to Sheeler’s. His training was distinct from his American colleagues, and his method was painstaking, producing as few as one canvas per year. His work was further distracted by his participation in the family business. His father ran a steel plant, and in 1938, Goeller remarked, “I’ve relapsed into the family trade long enough to design a factory” [as quoted by Gail Stavitsky, The Art of Charles Goeller, p. 5]. His career was cut short by an early death, but he left a wealth of work that transcends the Precisionist canon.
