A native Saint Louis artist for more than fifty years, Frank Nuderscher is known for his paintings of the Ozark landscape and for industrial city scenes of Saint Louis. He was relatively self taught and, the last survivor of the River front Art Colony, had a studio in the Granite Building at 4th and Market Streets.

In 1936, he was the supervisor of the WPA project. He was a member of the National Association of Mural Painters and of the Saint Louis Art Guild from whom he earned ten first prizes. He also served as president of the Independent Artists of Saint Louis.
