Frank Nuderscher was an American painter and muralist based in his native city of St. Louis, Missouri. In 1936, he was a supervisor for the Works in Progress Administration. A member of the National Society of Mural Painters, he produced murals for the St. Louis Zoological Gardens, and public buildings such as banks and hospitals. He also produced easel paintings of the Ozarks and urban St. Louis in a style influenced by the colors and atmospheric approach to landscape of Impressionism. Nuderscher was recognized with numerous awards from area arts institutions, including the City Art Museum of St. Louis (which also exhibited his work) the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, the St. Louis Art Guild, and the Missouri State Fair.
