H. C. Westermann (Horace Clifford “Cliff” Westermann) (11 December 1922 – 3 November 1981) was an American printmaker and sculptor whose art constituted a scathing commentary on militarism and materialism. His sculptures frequently incorporated traditional carpentry and marquetry techniques. Westermann resisted providing interpretation of his works of art. In one interview, when asked what an object meant, Westermann replied “It puzzles me too.”
In 1967, he was one of the celebrities featured on the cover of the Beatles’ album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.
In 1978 he was given a retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
