Born 1941 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 everywhere as a 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 with his success with the public. Today Neswadba is among the top reproduced artists of the presence.
