John Koerner left Prague in 1939 before the Nazi invasion, settling in Vancouver. In 1950 he began to paint full time, while teaching at the Vancouver School of Art. He quickly became involved in the West Coast Modernist scene alongside artists such as Gordon Smith, BC Binning, Jack Shadbolt and Lawren Harris. He later went on to teach at the University of British Columbia.
