John Hermansader (Reading, USA °1915 - Danbury, USA °2005) was an American painter, graphic artist and designer. Following his studies at the Memphis Academy of Art in Tennessee and László Moholy-Nagy's New Bauhaus in Chicago, he moved to New York where he studied with Motherwell at the New School of Social Research. A lifelong lover of jazz music, the genre not only profoundly influenced Hermansader's painting, but became a source of praise and fame in the 1950s, when he designed album covers for some of the greatest jazz artists of the time with Blue Note records, and his lyrical abstract paintings turned musical, sprinkled with coloring and movement. Hermansader passed away in 2005 in Danbury, Connecticut.
