GERHARD NESVADBA - Nesvadba's brilliant debut exhibition in Austria at age 27 was followed by a remarkable string of European exhibitions in his 30s. Extensive traveling throughout Europe gave Nesvadba his love for landscapes, and his immediate, extraordinary success in the Impressionist style was rewarded by a lifetime commitment to the genre.

Gerhard Nesvadba belongs to the small cadre of genuinely skilled artists who have an innate command of the foundations of composition, color, and light. Traditional in approach yet extremely personal in application, Nesvadba's rural landscapes and cottage scenes are effused with tranquil sunlight and his love of his work evident in every piece.

Son of one of the most successful painters and father to another, destined to be one of the most-reproduced artists of recent times, Gerhard Nesvadba was born near Darmstadt in war-torn West Germany in 1941. Two years later, his parents moved to Austria Apart from his father's encouragement, the few details of Nesvdba's early life and training include a high school teacher who recognized the talent in the young man who was constantly drawing and painting.

The artist's brilliant debut exhibition in Austria at age 27 was followed by a remarkable string of European exhibitions in his 30s. Extensive traveling throughout Europe gave Nesvadba his love for landscapes, and his immediate, extraordinary success in the Impressionist style was rewarded by a lifetime commitment to the genre. Little more is known of the man, but a great deal can be observed in his paintings.

Whereas gifted musicians are born with perfect pitch, Nesvadba belongs to the small cadre of genuinely skilled artists who have an innate command of the foundations of composition, color and light. Traditional in approach, yet extremely personal in application,

Nesvadba's rural landscapes and cottage scenes are effused with tranquil sunlight. In each landscape, look for coolness of distant mountains and clouds in classic balance with brilliant fields of color. His proportions are unerring, his enjoyment of the balanced asymmetry of nature is warm and witty, and his love of his work is evident in every piece.
