(German, b. 1941)
Born in 1941 in Ober-Ramstadt near Darmstadt, Western
Germany. The talents which the artist Gerhard Neswadba possesses to a high degree, the
masterful domination of form and a well developed feeling for harmonious colourism, are
not anywhere as highly valued today as they legitimately should be. Even so, the ability
to draw well was a prerequisite for any artistic creativity in all periods of art history.
Neswadba belongs to the small group of genuinely skilled artists, who still have a perfect
command of the basic foundations of their trade. Even if this does not fit into the
concepts of some official art critics with their preferences for isms, pop-Art
and Happenings, he is justified by his success with the public still endowed with a
sentiment for genuine values. Today Neswadba is among the top group of the most reproduced
artists of the present. Fine Art Reproductions after his originals are made all over the
world and have a huge following. The originals themselves, characteristic collectors
items, are masterpieces of the traditional school of painting.
Earlier on the artist participated frequently in exhibitions both at
home and abroad in Stockholm, Kopenhagen, and Vienna, however, disappointed by various
intrigues, he desisted from these activities and presently he lives as a free lance artist
The Graphic Collection in Albertina, Vienna, the Municipial Museum in
Hamburg, and the Collection of the Ministery for Art and Education in Vienna are a few of
his public collectors.
